ERIN LATIMER

Para-alpine

Latimer began skiing at Craigleith Ski Club near Collingwood, Ont. at the age of two. She was born with a congenital amputation of her right arm below the elbow and while her sister and cousins were already out on the slopes, Latimer was anxious to join them. She advanced quickly through ski school and started ski racing in the Nancy Greene Development League at age seven. Until joining the Canadian Para-Alpine Ski Team, Latimer raced in the able-bodied program at Craigleith. Latimer competed in the 2014 Sochi Paralympic Games, racking up top-10 in four categories: super combined, slalom, giant slalom, and downhill. As well, during World Cup Finals in the 2015-16 season, she consistently place top-ten in all disciplines.
