2014 Halfpipe Olympian and one of the first members of the Canadian women’s Halfpipe team in 2011, @keltieh Hansen, announces her retirement from competitive freestyle skiing. .
“I have so many amazing memories from being on the national team, it's hard to just pick one,” said Hansen. “I made the team back when I was 19 years old, and I couldn't believe that there was finally a national team for me to make! And I was going be one of the first women to be on it.” .
For halfpipe team coach Marc Mcdonell, Keltie was the shining example of determination and hard work. “She overcame some very difficult challenges throughout her career while maintaining her positive energy and sense of humour,” indicated Mcdonell. “I have the utmost respect for Keltie both as an athlete and a person. I’m proud to have had the special opportunity to work with her over the past seven years.” 👉Story in bio
