Like many, Josip arrived in the Canadian skeleton scene from the sport of track and field. He ran track in Calgary with Caltaf. After a couple of years in the program, he was encouraged by his coach to try skeleton. He took a Testing Camp in Edmonton where he met coaches Joe Cecchini and Kevin Boyer. After the scouting camp, he began training in the Ice House and has been hooked on the sport since.
Did you know... that Josip's mentor is Luke Kuypers, his strength and conditioning coach in high school, who had a huge influence on his training perspectives and habits? Luke works on the track crew at the Whistler Sliding Centre and is never shy to wow people with a backflip.
