This spring I had the privilege of travelling as team Physiotherapist with the National Moguls Team to Sweden and Spain for Worldcup competitions. These were the last two competitions of the season, an important year for the team as they prepare for the 2014 Olympics in Sochi. My days involved helping with on-hill training or competition during the day and treating athletes in the evening. I had some time to explore Are Sweden and Sierra Nevada Spain on foot and on skiis. Worldcup events bring athletes from all over the world, and to watch the Canadian team compete and come on top of the podium regularly was exciting. Keep watching our Canadian athletes this year as they prepare for next year’s Olympic Games.
