CAREER HIGHLIGHTS

Three-time Canada Winter Games gold medallist (15km classic, free sprint, 4x5km relay) in 2011…

PERSONAL

Getting into the Sport: Started skiing in Yellowknife when he was three… Has been skiing competitively for nine years… His family skied a lot while growing up so he’s never really known anything else…  Moved to Canmore at age seven where he moved up through the developmental system… Outside Interests: Enjoys cooking, climbing and anything related to the NFL… During the off-season likes to travel to parts of the world that skiing doesn’t take him to… Odds and Ends: Had his Olympic dream sparked by Simon Whitfield winning the triathlon at Sydney 2000… Favourite Olympic memory is his disbelief at waking up to the news on the radio that Chandra Crawford won the sprint at Turin 2006…
