Alexandria (Alex) Loutitt has been soaring to new heights with her history making ski jumping performances. In 2023, the Calgary, Alberta native became the first Canadian woman to ever win an FIS Ski Jumping World Cup event, winning on the normal hill in Zao, Japan. The next month, Alex broke through to become the first Canadian woman to win a World Junior Championship title in ski jumping. Loutitt took that feat one step further, becoming Canada’s first world champion in ski jumping, winning the large hill event of the senior circuit at the FIS Nordic World Ski Championships in Planica, Slovenia.
Her fantastic 2023 season came on the heels of her bronze medal Olympic debut at the Beijing 2022 Olympics. Along with teammates Mackenzie Boyd-Clowes, Matthew Soukup, and Abigail Strate, Alex won bronze in the inaugural Olympic mixed team ski jumping event.
Alex discovered her love for ski jumping watching the Vancouver 2010 Games and was hooked from her very first jump at age 9, enthralled by the feeling of weightlessness as she flew through the sky. Alex now resides & trains in Slovenia after the ski jump facilities at Canada Olympic Park in Calgary were shut down. Off the hill, Alex enjoys cooking, art, and reading. Alex is an Indigenous athlete and credits her work ethic, strength and determination from her Gwich’in First Nation ancestry. She’s proud to celebrate her indigenous roots, sporting her rabbit fur moccasins on podiums across the world.
