A Prince George athlete has caught the eye of Team Canada’s Winter Olympic Squad.
Tiana Gairns was named as an alternate for the ski cross event in Pyeongchang.
As an alternate, Gairns will not travel to South Korea unless an athlete on the team is injured before the event.
Gairns says she wasn’t expecting to be part of the games, so being an alternate is not a disappointment.
Gains will be on standby for if, or when she is called to suit up for Team Canada.
