2021

Katherine Stewart-Jones started skiing almost as soon as she learned to walk. Her parents would bring her and her siblings out skiing as a family outing. Katherine trains with the Nakkertok Nordic cross-country ski club. She has represented Canada at the 2017 World Ski Championships where she was part of the Canadian women’s historic 10th-place finish in the 4×5 km relay in Lahti, Finland. In 2019, Katherine made her second trip to the World Ski Championships where she chalked up a top-30 finish in the women’s 30 km skate-ski mass start race. She has just been selected by Nordiq Canada to compete at the FIS World Cup 2021 in Europe.

 

Antoine Cyr started skiing at a very young age. His parents were cross-country skiers and outdoor enthusiasts who brought him to Gatineau Park and passed on the passion for skiing. Identified as the best hope for Canadian cross-country skiing since Alex Harvey’s retirement, Antoine is the leader of the Nor-Am circuit. A member of the Skinouk Club and training at the Centre National d’Entraînement Pierre-Harvey, he also finished 18th in the 30 km freestyle event at the last Under 23 World Championships. Antoine has just been selected by Nordiq Canada to compete in Europe at the 2021 World Cup. He will also once again compete at the Under 23 World Championships.
