Read, 22, competed in the 2006 Olympics, but since then he has been competing on the World Cup circuit, and has become a leader on the team. His best result in the World Cup so far is a 23rd place at Zakopane in 2006. I guess you have to weigh very little to be a ski jumper, considering he only weighs 132 lbs. Well, he looks great with his shirt off so you won’t hear me complaining. Surprisingly, he is the first Canadian since 1991 to earn world ranking points, and has multiple top 30 finishes.
Here are some of Read’s stats:
Born: May 7, 1987
Birthplace: Edmonton, Alberta
Residence: Calgary, AB
Weight: 132 lbs
Events: LH Individual, NH Individual, LH Team
The Canadian 2010 Ski Jumping Team for this year’s Olympics consist of Stefan Read, Mackenzie Boyd-Clowes, Trevor Morrice, both 18, and Eric Mitchell, 17. Read is the only one who has been to the Olympics before, having competed in Turin.
Here he is in action – amazing!
You know, just looking good while training & stuff.
Grrr and Fierce! (Black & White Photograph by KC Armstrong and Colin Way – stay tuned for other photos they’ve taken of hot Canadian athletes)
