Freestyle Skiers: Quotes From the 2010 Olympic Winter Games


Danielle Poleschuk:

“It’s a true honour and unbelievable to be standing here wearing my Canadian clothes on Canadian soil at an Olympic Games.”


Kristi Richards, after the women’s moguls final: “I pushed my potential. I really pushed myself to my max. It was really fast. To see my back pull, I could not be happier. I gave my all and that is all I could do.”


Alex Bilodeau, after winning gold medal in moguls:

“I don’t believe it yet. It’s been a dream since I was a little kid and it’s come true.”


Veronika Bauer, after the women’s aerials qualification round:

“I’m so disappointed that I wasn’t able to do better on my second jump. I’ve worked so hard to get here. Not making it to the final is a disappointing experience.”


Stanley Hayer, ski cross:

“No there haven’t been any of those. It’s more the Olympic fever, and people trying to go inside on that second last jump and that’s not a place really to put a pass, because guys are jumping at different angles, and it’s just disrespectful for the guy you’re trying to pass if you take someone out, because it never ends up too nice, you’re pretty high up in the air.”

Davey Barr, ski cross

“The course was a lot faster this morning because it was still frozen, so I’m sure they’ll take that into consideration.”

Chris Del Bosco, ski cross:

“I wasn’t content with just third. It’s all right for some people, but I wanted to give 100% for myself and my country.”


Warren Shouldice, after qualifying for aerials:

“Super relieved with just getting through it because that’s the goal tonight, to make the top 12. You know you can’t win the Olympics in the semifinals, you can only lose it so it’s really weird for us to do that, but I made it through and I jumped very well and I can’t wait for the 25th.”


Ashleigh McIvor, ski cross, after winning gold:

“Standing in the starting gate, I was thinking that everything that’s happened in my life has led up to this moment.”
