Jack Crawford gets World Cup Downhill points

While many were still basking in the holiday season, Jack Crawford charged down the Stelvio slope to a 28th place finish in the super G and close out the speed races for the 2020 year in Bormio, ITA on December 29th.

In the downhill race the following day, Jack charged from 49th to finish in 23rd, a personal best and his first ever World Cup downhill points.

At just 23-years-old, Jack already has 33 World Cup starts. He garnered the skiing world’s attention in 2015 when at 18, he had five top-5 finishes at the FIS World Junior Championships. His World Cup debut came months later when he started at Kitzbuehel, one of the world’s legendary courses. He raced alpine combined at the 2018 Olympic Games, before going on to collect four top-30 finishes in 2019/20. Although he comes from a skiing family, he played high-performance hockey until he dedicated his life to skiing at 15.

A Toronto native, Jack represents the Whistler Mountain Ski Club and the Georgian Peaks Ski Club. After finishing the 2019/20 season ranked 22nd in super-G, he has his sights set on greater heights, as he prepares for the 2022 Olympic Games.

Keep your eye on this young Canadian!
