David Walker selected for FIS 2019 World University Games

Long time Team Telemark member David Walker will be representing Canada at the World University Games in Krasnoyarsk, Russia in March of 2019.  Canadian skiers, attending full time university study, qualified for the games during the 2017-2018 season.  David was 2nd overall in the distance points list.

David is leaving Kelowna in the fall to continue his studies at U Vic.  While Victoria isn’t blessed with great skiing we are sure David will keep himself in great shape for the games!
