Eliot Grondin was just 15 years old when he began competing on the Nor-Am Cup circuit and recorded his first podium finish in February 2017. Just over a week later, he finished seventh at the world junior championships. After earning a second Nor-Am Cup podium, he was set to make his World Cup debut in March 2017 in Veysonnaz, Switzerland. But on the morning of the qualification round, he broke his forearm during a crash in training, ending his season. Six months later, he made his return to competition at the World Cup in Cerro Catedral, Argentina as he joined the World Cup circuit fulltime. Grondin made his Olympic debut at PyeongChang 2018 as a 16-year-old, making him the youngest man and second-youngest athlete on Team Canada at those Games.
