Courtenay's Spencer O'Brien will represent Canada at Pyeongchang Games

WATCH: A group of five, led by Sébastien Toutant and Spencer O’Brien, will join 2014 Olympic bronze medallist Mark McMorris and 2016-17 X Games champion Max Parrot on Canada’s snowboard slopestyle team next month at the Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

O’Brien will look to improve upon a twelfth place showing in Sochi, where slopestyle made its Olympic debut. The 29-year-old, who hails from Courtenay, B.C., had been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis just two months before the Games and had her training disrupted.
