Forsyth, 24, of Canmore, Alta., was one of the great Canadian stories of the FIS World Alpine Ski Championships 2003 at St. Moritz. Despite struggling through what she describes as unimpressive results this season, Forsyth was able to stay positive and put together two solid runs in the World Championships giant slalom to earn Canada's second medal of the event.

Forsyth is no stranger to podium performances, having garnered four second-place finishes in World Cup action in her career, as well as numerous Canadian Championship titles and wins on the Nor Am and Europa Cup circuits. The bronze was her first World Championship medal.

The Alpine Canada Alpin Athlete of the Week is meant to publicly recognize the World Cup-level athletes who've made the largest contribution of World Cup points to Canada's overall Nation's Cup standings. Alpine Canada Alpin also selects a “most improved athlete of the week” in recognition of those athletes who did not score World Cup points prior to November 30, 2002, whose performances lead to World Cup point contributions to the overall Nation's Cup.
