Reason He previously competed in Nordic combined, but retired from the sport at age 18. Soon after, he realised he was missing sport and considered taking up either skeleton, track cycling or speed skating. "I wanted to do something completely different. I chose skeleton, as I thought that was the coolest one." (calgaryherald.com, 02 Apr 2016)
Ambition To win a medal at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in Pyeongchang. (calgaryherald.com, 02 Apr 2016)

Additional information General
NORDIC ADVANTAGE
He believes his experience competing in Nordic combined has helped him progress in skeleton. "Both of those sports, ski jumping and cross-country skiing, gave me a combined focus for skeleton. Cross-country skiing gave me that drive to work hard and always be pushing the envelope. Ski jumping gave me that desire for the adrenaline rush." (cbc.ca, 24 Nov 2015)

FORERUNNER
He was a ski jumping forerunner at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver. "Being part of the Olympics in that small way confirmed my unwavering desire to experience it as an athlete one day." (barrettmartineau.com, Mar 2017)
