A Fort McMurray snowboarder is heading to PyeongChang to represent Canada on the slopes at next month’s Winter Olympics.
On Tuesday in Whistler it was announced, 24-year-old Brooke Voigt will join the likes of Mark McMorris, Sebastian Toutant, Max Parrot, Tyler Nicholson, Laurie Blouin and Spencer O’Brien on a loaded Canadian squad.
Voigt, who was a Sochi alternate in 2014, won FIS World Cup Medals in both big-air and slopestyle in 2017.
She notched a top-ten finish at the Big-Air Olympic test-run, a bronze medal in slopestyle at the World Cup and a 2nd place finish at the Andorra World Snowboard Tour.

That 2nd place finish was behind only Blouin.
The slopestyle events run from February 10-12, while Big Air will take place later in the games.
