duncanDave Duncan’s first Olympic experience at Vancouver 2010 was short-lived when he was injured during the first day of training at the Games and was unable to compete.

Duncan had earned his spot on the 2010 Olympic Team with his bronze medal at the World Cup in Lake Placid in late January. He followed that up with a silver medal at the Winter X Games in Aspen, where he was part of a Canadian podium sweep, creating high expectations for the team at Vancouver 2010. But two days before he was scheduled to compete in ski cross’ Olympic debut, Duncan’s ski tip got caught on a course feature during training and he broke his right collarbone.

In keeping with the wild and unpredictable nature of ski cross, Duncan’s results have been up and down. In 2011-12 he won his second Winter X Games medal, taking bronze in Aspen. He also had his best World Cup season, finishing sixth in the ski cross rankings thanks to two podium finishes.

Duncan is involved in keeping ski cross racers safe while competing. He sits as a skier representative on a safety panel recognized by FIS to hopefully ensure that no more skiers are fatally injured as his teammate and often roommate Nik Zoricic was in March 2012.
