Part of the next generation of Canadian luge, Mitchel Malyk spent his first full season on the World Cup circuit in 2013-14. He also made his Olympic debut with a 26th place finish in the men’s singles event at Sochi 2014.

Malyk got his first taste of the Olympic experience when he competed at the 2012 Youth Olympic Winter Games in Innsbruck where he was the top Canadian luger thanks to his fifth place finish. He competed on the Junior World Cup circuit in 2012-13, but made his senior world championship debut on the home track in Whistler where he finished 25th. The time he posted also placed him fourth in the under-23 world championships. Earlier in the season he had finished 11th at the 2013 World Junior Championships.
