The ISMF World Championship opening ceremonies start tomorrow afternoon. We will parade proudly down the streets with our Canadian flag amongst many other nations. A total of 251 athletes are expected to compete. There will be athletes from Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Spain, France, Great Britain, Germany, Greece, Iran, Italy, Japan, Norway, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Switzerland, Sweden and the U.S.A.

The countries to watch out for will be Spain, French, Italy, Switzerland, and Germany. Everyone expects the infamous Killian Jornet to podium in several of the men’s events-specifically the vertical and the individual. For the women we are watching Swiss Maude Mathys and French Laetitia Roux.  Laeititia started ski mountaineering when she was a mere 9 years old. I have counted 26 different skimo racing victories that she has claimed. Needless to say, I will be racing against the athletes who are leagues above me. I am super excited to learn and challenge myself!

Allez! Allez! Allez!
