A member of the national development team, Emily Nishikawa made her Olympic debut at Sochi 2014 one year after she first competed at the FIS World Championships. Nishikawa had competed at three editions of the FIS World Under-23 Championships in 2010, 2011 and 2012, posting a top result of 16th in the 10km free in 2011.

Nishikawa made her World Cup debut in January 2008 and in recent years has split her time between that elite circuit and the NorAm Cup.

PERSONAL

Getting into the Sport: Started skiing at age four… Her older brother was a skier so she began as well… Was a competitive gymnast until age 14 when she decided to focus on cross-country skiing… Outside Interests: During the competitive season enjoys cooking, reading and crocheting… Studying psychology through Athabasca University, in the second year of a four year program… Odds and Ends: Had her Olympic dream sparked by watching Beckie Scott win bronze (later upgraded to gold) at Salt Lake City 2002… Loves watching Olympic gymnastics because that was the first sport she competed in before skiing…

NOTABLE INTERNATIONAL RESULTS

FIS World Championships: 2013 – 57th (sprint classic), 57th (10km free), DNF (15km skiathlon), Lapped (30km mass start classic)
