Tsuyuki

Katie Tsuyuki made her Olympic debut at Sochi 2014, where she missed a spot in the final by one place, finishing as the top Canadian female halfpiper in 13th place overall.

Tsuyuki made her World Cup debut in December 2005 in Whistler. She would record her best World Cup result in January 2010, finishing ninth in Stoneham, Quebec. Just a couple of weeks later, she was at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games, not as a competitor, but as a forerunner for the halfpipe competition.

Tsuyuki is a three-time medallist at the Canadian championships, including her gold medal run in 2006. Tsuyuki made her debut at the FIS World Championships in 2013 where she finished 15th.
