Congrats to Ashleigh McIvor Gold Olympics Medalist

When Ashleigh McIvor was an undergraduate at the University of British Columbia, she wrote an essay for her English class on why ski cross should be in the Winter Games.

She couldn't have imagined she would become its first Olympic champion.

The 26-year-old native of Whistler secured a place in Olympic history Tuesday, winning the inaugural women's ski-cross event in near-whiteout conditions before a packed house at Cypress Mountain.

Another fun fact about Ashleigh is that she went to School with one of the guys here at Misticon HQ. Apparently her mum used to be their school nurse.
