Olympian. 6 X World Cup Medalist. World Championship Medalist. Canadian National Champion
Looks like a great spot for a break. Nothing beats cooling off in the lakes with this summer weather ☀️🙌🏼 Pretty stoked on how the knee is feeling on the bike this week. Clocked in over 100km and it’s only Thursday 🤘🏼
I vividly remember my dad waking me up at 3am, to watch the live broadcast of the 2006 Winter Olympic debut of Snowboard Cross. It was at this moment I wanted to represent Canada on the Olympic stage. Through the highs and mostly lows, dad has encouraged me to work hard and create my own luck. 12 years later, my family had the chance to join me in Korea for my 2nd Winter Olympics. It was a truly special day and I can’t thank my family enough for the support and love. Thanks Papa Joe, love ya!
Flying to Calgary for surgery tomorrow. Thanks to the very helpful @AirCanada staff for making it as easy as possible!
Hello Internet World,
First off thank you all so much for the love and support! As you may know, I suffered a crash in the semi-final at the Olympics. To be honest, I only crashed in that spot because of the over speed on the big jump before. When overshooting the jump to nearly flat I instantly knew my knee had fully blown out. I tried my very best to hold on as long as possible with hopes of crossing the finish line, one last time.
Thanks to the great on site medical staff I was safely escorted straight to an MRI and a follow up with the Canadian Olympic Team medial doctors. The results were very clear. Ruptured ACL, possible LCL and extensive damage to both meniscus.
The plan for now is simple. I will undergo surgery this Friday in Banff with the best hands I know, Dr. Heard. Following the surgery I will be doing everything I can to make my return in 2019 and compete again on the World Cup circuit!
I can't thank you all enough for the amazing messages and love through this difficult time!
