American coach comes to Canadian team after working with Olympic champions Mikaela Shiffrin, Lindsey Vonn

The Canadian women’s alpine team makes its way to  Calgary for physical testing from April 24-26, meanwhile, the team lead staff meet at the Alpine Canada headquarters from April 15-26. 

‘I definitely believe that creating a strong culture or even helping to continue that and evolve, will help them grow as athletes,” Harjo said. “I’m really excited to see what they’ve accomplished so far — I think, bodes well for the future of the team.”

The experience Harjo brought to the table made her the main target for the Canadian team heading into the next season. 

“It’s relief and excitement,” Alpine Canada high performance director Phil McNichol told CBC Sports. “It’s not easy to find someone as good as Karin to come in and provide leadership and quality at the level we’re looking for.”

Although the Canadian women’s team fell short of their goals at the Beijing 2022 Olympics, the strong World Cup results point toward future success. Young athletes Cassidy Gray, Britt Richardson and Kiki Alexander competed on the World Cup circuit this year, taking the next step in their careers and ensuring Canada’s future at the top level. 

“It’s about culture, attitude and approach, how you train, and how you can conduct yourself and behave is the margin of difference,” McNichol said. “I’m really excited to hit reset, and start a new [Olympic] quad with the first spring camp of my limited time here and start it right and with a change in leadership.”metasports

Harjo comes to Alpine Canada from the U.S. Ski Team, where she worked with Olympic champions Mikaela Shiffrin and Lindsay Vonn, among other American skiers.

Canadian alpine skiers posted strong results in 2021-22 and while none cracked the podium, Valerie Grenier, 25, came close with a fourth-place finish in giant slalom in Kranjska Gora, Slovenia while Ali Nullmeyer, 23, finished fifth in a slalom in Zagreb, Croatia

 “I’m not going to come in and give them the magic to put them on the podium,” Harjo said. “It’s about teamwork, working with them and figuring out as a group what we can do to be successful — I’m just here to facilitate an environment to make them successful.”
