Canada Post Freestyle Grand Prix

This past weekend I had the oppertunity to attend the World Cup of Freestyle Skiing event in Calgary, Alberta. For those of you who have never experienced Moguls or Arials live I suggest you consider doing this in the near future. The athlete's are incredibly skilled and show charactersitics of the most talented athletes in the world; strength, speed, agility and exceptional biomechanics. Canada had an exceptional showing winning Gold (Mikael Kingsbury) and Silver (Alex Bilodeau) in men's moguls, Gold (Warren Shouldice) in men's arials, and Silver (Audrey Robichaud) in women's moguls. I also had the oppertunity to meet Jennifer Heil and her incredible family who were all down in Calgary to support her following her recent retirement announcement. I would like to wish the Canadian Freestyle Ski team all the best at next weeks World Championships in Salt Lake City Utah.
