The University of British Columbia Alpine Ski Team will once again have strong representation at the up-coming World University Games this January. Thunderbird rookies Trevor Bruce and Alexandra McLean were named to the Canadian Team for the Winter University Games in Tarviso, Italy. Their selection marks the fifth consecutive World Games that UBC has had Alpine Skiers represent Canada. Twenty-one year old Bruce, a North Vancouver native and engineering student, was a member of the Canadian National Ski Team this past season and has been one of Canada's strongest young racers in recent years. Eighteen year-old McLean is also in her first year at UBC and spent the past several years racing out of Whistler for the BC Ski Team. According, to Gordie Bowles the BC Alpine Program Director, the Canadian Team that Bruce and McLean join “is an impressive group, one of the better groups assembled for this event for Canada in a long time”.
The World University Games runs from January 14 to 27 and brings together the worlds best student-athletes to participate in several winter sports. McLean and Bruce will race in three or four events over the course of the games and will join their UBC teammates for the rest of the USCSA racing season.
