Derek Livingston has dreamed of attending the Olympic Winter Games since he was named to the national snowboard team in 2009. That dream came true at Sochi 2014, where he finished 19th. He was the top ranked Canadian male halfpiper, missing a spot in the semifinal by one place.

He made his World Cup debut in February 2009 at what was the official test event of the Vancouver 2010 venue at Cypress Mountain. He earned his career-best World Cup result, sixth place, in February 2011 in Calgary.

Livingston competed at the FIS World Junior Championships in both halfpipe and slopestyle in 2010 and 2011, posting his best result of 10th place in the halfpipe in 2010. He went on to compete at the FIS World Championships in 2011 and 2013.


Getting into the Sport: Started snowboarding at age eight when he and his brother were given boards for Christmas… Was driven to catch up to his brother’s ability level…  Odds and Ends: Enjoys skateboarding, trampolining, camping… Nickname: D-rock… Used to work as a lifeguard… Favourite Olympic memory is watching the Turin 2006 halfpipe finals with his family and friends at a resort lodge… Always travels with an external hard drive loaded with movies…


FIS World Championships: 2013 – 51st (HP); 2011 – 31st (HP)
