Louis Bouchard, Francois Pépin
National Ski Team Background:
Antoine is competing in his sixth season as a member of the National Team. During his last year in the junior category he decided to join the Centre national d’entraînement Pierre Harvey (CNEPH). His performances at the 2018 Junior World Championships met the Senior National Team criteria and his development has been steadily moving forward ever since. Antoine enjoyed a breakthrough season in 2021 while racing against the top athetles in the world with top-30 results at the World Championships and World Cups. He built on that performance to enjoy a memorable fifth-place finish with Graham Ritchie in the Team Sprint at his Olympic debut in 2022.
Introduction to Cross-Country Skiing:
Antoine started cross-country skiing when he was very young. His parents were cross-country and outdoor enthusiasts who brought him to Gatineau Park. He learned to love competition with the Skinouk Cross-Country Ski Team, and moved up the ranks and raced with his club’s elite team. Antoine is very grateful that this passion for skiing has been passed on to him.
Antoine has always been an easy going person. He loves meeting new people, getting to know them, learning more and interacting with them. He is passionate about the outdoors and sports. He particularly likes cycling (road, mountain, cyclocross). He is very ambitious for the future, but is still unsure what he wants to do when his ski career comes to an end, or what field of study he would like to get into.
