Revelstoke’s Emily Suchy is one of the leaders of the six-person BC Para-Nordic Team, Cross-Country BC announced last week.

Suchy, a Nordic sit-skier, will be attending the Canada Winter Games in Prince George, B.C., in February.

She will be joined by standing male skier Andy Lin, a gold medallist at the last two Ski Nationals, male sit skier Ethan Hess, female standing skiers Emily Weekes and Lindsey McDonald, and standing male skier Sam Piercey.

Suchy was a double-gold medallist and crowned the Para-Nordic Women Sit Skiing National Champion at the national cross-country skiing championships in Whistler, B.C., in 2013.

The Canada Winter Games take place from Feb. 13 to March 1. The B.C. Para-Nordic team won six medals at the 2011 Canada Winter Games in Halifax and hopes to surpass that total this year.
