    Background

    National Ski Team Background:
    Natalie Wilkie was Canada’s youngest athlete at the 2018 Paralympic Winter Games. She made a remarkable Games debut at age 17 with a gold, silver, and bronze in cross-country skiing.
    A high-peformance junior cross-country skier in British Columbia, Natalie was invited to the Para-Nordic program following a workshop accident at school where she lost four fingers on her left hand.

     She wasted no time introducting herself to the world. Natalie posted three fourth-place finishes in her first World Cup in December which qualified her for the Paralympic Team and is now one of the top athletes on the international circuit.

     Natalie is a member of both the able-bodied BC Nordic Team and the Canadian Para-Nordic Team… She was selected for the BC Nordic team following her bronze-medal finish at cross-country ski nationals in March 2017.

     Personal:
    Natalie lost four fingers on her left hand in a school workshop accident in 2016. Hers sister Isabelle is also a competitive skier who competed in cross country skiing at 2018 B.C. Winter Games.
