The Canadian Olympic Committee announced the final group of freestyle skiers who will represent Canada at the 2014 Winter Olympics during a ceremony in Vancouver on Monday.
Moguls, aerials, halfpipe and slopestyle skiers were named to the team in a ceremony on Jan 20.
The roster includes:
- Dave Duncan
- Brady Leman
- Chris Del Bosco
- Marielle Thompson
- Kelsey Serwa
- Georgia Simmerling
“All three of us on the men’s team are heading into Sochi looking for redemption,” said Del Bosco, who was fourth at the Vancouver Olympics. “We all feel like we have a second chance.”
“I know I’m not only speaking for myself when I say that we will do everything in our power to make our nation proud next month as we race for gold,” said Serwa, another Olympic veteran and the 2011 world champion.
Duncan and Thompson are also legitimate threats for gold in Sochi, with both leading the respective men’s and women’s World Cup standings.
Ski cross made its Olympic debut in Vancouver, where Canadian Ashleigh McIvor won gold in the women’s event. She’s now an analyst with CBC for Sochi.
