CSIO Athlete of the Month
Graham Ritchie is a member of Big Thunder Nordic Ski Club and in 2017-18 is in his rookie season with National Training Development Centre Thunder Bay, one of three training centers for Canadian cross-country skiing. What started as a mere interest in the sport, Graham made the decision to give Cross Country Skiing a shot transitioning from skating on ice playing hockey to skiing on snow. Since then Graham has been a rising star on the national skiing circuit. Ritchie competed in his first World Junior Championships, after qualifying for the Canadian team in January at Olympic Trials in Mont St Anne, Quebec.
