Calgary, Alta. (February 04, 2023) — Alpine Canada officially announced today the athletes who will represent Canada at the 2023 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in Courchevel and Méribel, France.
“Our women have had some special moments this season,” said Karin Harjo, Head Coach of Canada’s Women Alpine Ski Team. “This group really supports and pushes each other to be better every day. Val’s World Cup win was an amazing moment for the team that served to reinforce the possibilities that come from hard work and determination. We believe that the best is yet to come for this amazing group of athletes.”
“It has been an exciting World Cup season so far and the team is showing that they are ready to build on the podiums from last season,” said Mark Tilston, Head Coach of Canada’s Men’s Alpine Ski Team. “Jack’s two podiums, Cam and Broderick in the top 10 in Kitzbühel, Jeff’s seventh place last week, are some of the team’s highlights, and signs of what’s to come for this group. The guys have been training and racing hard and are rounding into form for these world championships.”
“Congratulations to the amazing athletes who have qualified for these world championships,” said Therese Brisson, President and CEO of Alpine Canada. “I join all Canadians in looking forward to the unforgettable moments this team will create over the next two weeks in Courchevel/Méribel.”
