U SPORTS and Nordiq Canada have announced the student-athletes and coaches who will represent Canada in cross-country skiing at the 2023 FISU Winter World University Games in Lake Placid.

Twelve Canadian cross-country skiers – six women and six men – will take part in the various events, which will take place from January 13 to 22 on the Olympic trails of Mount Van Hoevenberg.

Canada will be counting on two student-athletes who will be in their second experience at the FISU Games. Aidan Kirkham (Ottawa) and Alexander Maycock (Nippising) were both on the Canadian team in Krasnoyarsk, Russia (2019). Conor McGovern (Lakehead), fourth in the individual standings at the last National University Championships in Whistler, is also part of the team.

On the women’s side, Bronwyn Williams (Carleton) just had a strong performance, as she captured gold in the distance event at Eastern Canada Cup last weekend.

Canada will be led in Lake Placid by coaches Steven Wintoniw and Diane Poncelet.

Cross-country skiing made its debut at the 1960 FISU Games in Chamonix. Canada has reached the podium only once in the discipline, winning bronze in the men’s relay event in Belluno (Italy) in 1985.
