Team Canada Kevin Boyer PyeongChang 2018

Kevin Boyer


Just two years after he first started sliding at the Alberta skeleton school, Kevin Boyer entered his first North American Cup races in November 2012 and posted back-to-back top-10 finishes on the Calgary track. He raced fulltime on the North American Cup circuit in 2013-14, earning three podium finishes. He also competed at his first world junior championships where he cracked the top-10.

Boyer started the 2014-15 season in North American Cup races before progressing into Europa Cup events. He won a silver medal in his first Europa Cup race in St. Moritz. After two more seasons on the Europa Cup, which included a bronze medal in St. Moritz in January 2016, he debuted on the World Cup circuit in January 2017 and made his world championship debut a month later. He posted career-high results in November and December 2017 when he finished 12th in Whistler and Winterberg. He finished 17th in his Olympic debut at PyeongChang 2018.
