Brian Stemmle

Considered one of the most courageous alpine skiers in Canadian history, Brian Stemmle returns to the Olympic Games for a third time as a broadcaster for alpine skiing and will be a reporter for CBC/Radio-Canada’s coverage of the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018. 

A member of the Canadian National Team from 1985 to 1999, Stemmle represented Canada at four Olympic Winter Games, setting a record that has never been matched by another Canadian ski racer.

Stemmle’s rise to prominence was the most rapid of any ski racer on the World Cup circuit, rising to seventh position in his first two years. Stemmle has two downhill podium finishes: third in Val Gardena, Italy in 1987 and second in Garmisch, Germany in 1996.

While Stemmle was known as a downhill specialist, he also had great success in the Super-G discipline, capturing a bronze medal during a 1985 World Cup event in Furano, Japan.

A six-time medalist at the Canadian Championships, Stemmle was inducted into the Canadian Ski Hall of Fame in 2002 and the Aurora Sports Hall of Fame in 2013.
