    In 2002 hopes were high for the full women's contingent and one male representative for Canada.  Beckie Scott of Vermilion, Alberta, again was leading the charge.  Beckie and teammates Sara Renner, Milaine Theriault, and sisters Amanda and Jaime Fortier had some top notch results, including a 3rd place finish in a World Cup relay leading up to the Olympic Games.  Beckie also notched a few World Cup podium finishes of her own in the new individual sprint event.

    Canadian fans were not to be disappoined when Beckie sprinted to a 3rd place finish in the pursuit event - not considered her strongest event.  The bronze medal was eventually upgraded to a gold medal, in 2004, as the two Russian ladies ahead of her on the podium got caught for doping violations.  Beckie also finished 5th in the sprint event, dashing away from the field in the B-Final.
