Athlete Profile: Kelsey Serwa

A revelation since switching to ski cross in 2008, Serwa won her first World Cup race in January 2010 and hasn’t looked back since. A talented, tough and extremely determined athlete, Serwa has become one of the most dominant racers on the circuit, racking up 16 World Cup podiums and winning gold at the 2011 X Games and the 2011 ski cross world championships. Serwa returned from a serious knee injury in 2012-13 only to reinjure it, but she is expected to be one of Canada’s best medal hopes at the 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games. Serwa grew up in Kelowna, B.C., where her grandfather was a co-founder of her local hill, Big White Ski Resort.
