In just his third year on the National Ski Team, Alex teamed up with Devon Kershaw to win Canada’s first-ever men’s medal at the World Championships when they captured the gold in the team sprint at the mecca of cross-country skiing in Oslo, Norway in 2011. He became Canada’s most accomplished cross-country ski athlete at the World Championships in 2013 when he also won the bronze medal in the sprint event. Alex has reached the World Championship podium at all levels of the sport for Canada. Alex also became the first Canadian to win a gold medal at the Under-23 World Championship when he captured the pursuit title in Estonia weeks before making history with Kershaw. One of the most successful junior racers ever produced in the national program, Alex is the only Canadian to have won three medals at the World Junior Championships.

The son of legendary cross-country skier, Pierre Harvey, Alex is as determined to achieve excellence in the classroom as he is on the snow. Alex has balanced his academic and athletic lifestyle while enrolled in the ski- études program during high school, and continues to take university courses on a part-time basis during the shoulder seasons. Alex also enjoys spending time with friends, going to movies and listening to music.
