The first event of the series will be the Para Alpine World Cup in Zagreb, Croatia from January 16-17.

“Our athletes are competing year-round at important events like world championships and we want to bring those competitions to Canadians. Having these events accessible to watch in between Paralympic Games is a huge priority for us and will help build more interest as we follow the journeys of our Paralympic athletes.” 

“As Canada’s Paralympic Network, we are proud to provide even more opportunities for Canadians to cheer on their homegrown Para athletes in a wider variety of sports,” said Greg Stremlaw, Executive Director, CBC Sports, and General Manager, Paralympics. “CBC/Radio-Canada is committed to sharing and supporting the stories of diverse Canadians, and our ongoing collaboration with the Canadian Paralympic Committee continues to allow us to shine a spotlight on these incredible athletes who represent the country on the world stage.” 

Viewers will be able to follow Canada’s top Para alpine skiers throughout the season, including PyeongChang 2018 breakout star Mollie Jepsen and five-time Paralympic medallist Mac Marcoux. The Canadian Para alpine team won 10 medals at the Paralympic Winter Games last March.
