Best memory as an athlete: Finishing in front of Beckie Scott at the Canadian Championships in Valcartier in 2001 and Charlo in 2004 sprint qualifiers are moments that Christine will never forget! Beckie had finished 16th in the overall and 6th in the sprint ranking of the World Cup in 2004! Christine was also the flag bearer of the Canadian delegation at the 2005 Innsbruck Universiades. Her best performance at this international event was an excellent 19th position.
How does your athlete career help you in your coach’s career? Christine’s coaching job allows her to give back all that she learned as a competitor to the younger ones. She can share her experience as a traveller, her racing tactics, her tips to keep the motivation high, etc. Her racer’s experience gives her a very good credibility among youth.
Best aspect of being a coach: Seeing her athletes achieving their goal and participate in their success. Did you know that Christine was in charge of Alex Harvey’s strength program while she was assistant coach with the PHNTC? J She also likes her job very much because it is so varied: psychology, waxing, training, etc. Plus it keeps her in good shape!
The aspect of the job that is the most difficult: It is sometimes difficult for Christine to conciliate family and work. It is not always easy for mommy to carry her baby into a crowded, overwhelming and stressful environment of a wax room!
Goals as a coach: Christine thinks that she has the most to teach to the younger provincial clubs athlete (12-18 years old). She is currently using her energy at making them ski fast and get ready for the next season!
