As Alpine Canada gets ready to celebrate 100 years of ski racing in the country, a Squamish skier has been nominated to one of the 2019-2020 national alpine, para-alpine and ski cross teams.
Mikayla Martin has been nominated for a spot on the national ski cross team.
In 2018, Martin placed first in the World Junior Cup. Earlier this year, she finished eighth in her World Championships debut in February.
For the 55 nominated athletes, this season will include test events at the host venues for the upcoming 2022 Olympics and the World Cup stops in Canada.
"I want to take this opportunity to not only recognize the hard work and dedication of these national team nominees and all of the aspiring ski racers in Canada," Vania Grandi, the president and CEO of Alpine Canada, said in a press release.
The national team athletes will be officially introduced in November.
