Michael Lambert made his Olympic debut at Vancouver 2010 as a member of the very strong Canadian men’s alpine snowboard team and finished a respectable 12th.
At the 2009 FIS World Championships, Lambert was one of three Canadians to place in the top 10 of the parallel giant slalom (PGS). He gained more momentum during the 2009-10 season when he earned his first World Cup podium followed by his first World Cup victory. He ended the season ranked fifth in the World Cup standings for parallel snowboard, the second-best Canadian behind Olympic champion Jasey-Jay Anderson.
Lambert had enjoyed a very successful junior career. After finishing fourth in PGS at the 2005 FIS World Junior Championships, he moved up to win the silver medal in 2006.
