About This Athlete

Growing up I was involved in alpine ski racing, baseball, football and track. I coached alpine ski racing for 13 years, from the grassroots level to the Canadian Alpine Ski Team. I coached the Canadian Women's World Cup Speed Team at two World Alpine Ski Championships and the Nagano Olympics. I started CrossFit in January 2007. I was an individual competitor at the 2008 Games. In 2009, I was a member of the CrossFit Calgary Team that finished 3rd at the Games. In 2010, I was a member of Team OPT at the Games. I am a trainer at OPT.

I only had 2 comments on my page and they were both from you so you are now officially my new best friend. I will be glad to have a familiar face and a veteran at the games. Congrats, see you in Carson Corson.

Congrats Robert on making it the the games in LA. I'm in the 50-55 Masters group and didn't make it but one of my friends in your group (Gene LaMonica) is going to the gams as well. I just wanted to say that your videos are rock solid....I've seen others that are not on this site and wanted to commend you. Good luck at the games...

Congratulations on making it to LA! I will be there as a spectator with the entire family as part of our family vacation since the entire family is now addicted to CF! I will look for you there.....and yes I did let the intensity get to me on WOD 4 which is not like me but it was a bit frustrating having plenty of time to get a few MUs and not being able to get 1! Oh well. Good luck and train hard.
