While many sports fans are getting acquainted with freestyle skiing disciplines on TV during the Olympics, Duncan’s Todd Heard is living them.
Heard collected a medal and two top-10 results on the BC Timber Tour in Prince George last weekend, where he was one of seven skiers representing the Island.
Heard won a bronze medal in moguls, and finished in the top 10 in both slopestyle and big air.
Just a week earlier, Heard was in Ontario for the Canadian Open Series in halfpipe and slopestyle, competing against skiers of all ages, including semi-pros. After missing the finals in halfpipe, Heard managed a ninth-place result in slopestyle the following day. Heard will compete in the BC Winter Games, which begin on Feb. 20, followed by a competition at Silverstar in March.
