Alexandria Loutitt became Canada’s first-ever ski jumping world champion Wednesday with a gold medal in the women’s large hill event in Planica, Slovenia.
The 19-year-old from Calgary commented, “Since I started in this sport, I’ve always dreamt of becoming a world champion. I remember watching Lindsey Van win the first-ever Women’s Ski Jumping World Championship event in Norway, and at that time hoped I would be there one day.”
In early February, Louttit became the first Canadian woman to win a world junior title in ski jumping in Whistler.
Congratulations Alexandria, we are proud of you!
