Athlete Profile: Alex Duckworth

Alex Duckworth is from a small fishing village along Nova Scotia’s mountain-less south shore. Snowboarding may seem like an unusual career choice being from that area, but she has made a name for herself. Duckworth was an alternate for the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games, after breaking her ankle mid way through qualifications, only to miss qualifying by one position. Duckworth’s Determination and hard work has her fully recovered and strong as ever, with Sochi 2014 as her goal. When not competing in the southern hemisphere, Duckworth is keen to spend most of her summers where she grew up, sailing in the Nova Scotia waters.
