Inspired to try skeleton after watching Korea’s Yun Sungbin win gold on home ice at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games, David is now chasing his own Olympic dreams in the sport.

He attended a testing camp in Calgary in 2018, just eight months after having knee surgery. A successful first test, he went to skeleton school where he learned to slide on the Olympic Track in Calgary.

David never competed in sport competitively growing up but he is a black belt in taekwondo.

David works as a mechanical engineer in the summer time.
