crawford_headshotRosanna Crawford had her Olympic dream sparked while watching older sister Chandra win gold in cross-country skiing at Turin 2006. Four years later they were able to experience the Olympic Winter Games together as both Chandra and Rosanna were members of the Canadian Olympic Team at Vancouver 2010. They both returned to the Games at Sochi 2014 where Rosanna helped the 4x6km relay team to a best ever Olympic result of eighth place.

Crawford had her first taste of multi-sport competition at the 2007 Canadian Winter Games in Whitehorse where she won three gold medals.

It was not until 2013 that Crawford debuted at the IBU World Championships. She broke into the top-20 with a 17th place finish in the 15km individual event. Earlier in the season she recorded her career-best result of 12th place in the 7.5km sprint event at the World Cup in Pokljuka, Slovenia. Those results contributed to her being named Biathlon Canada’s Female Athlete of the Year for 2012-13.
