Description


Beckie Scott retired in 2006 as Canada’s most decorated cross-country ski racer in the history of the sport. A 3- time Olympian, Scott won gold in Salt Lake City in 2002, becoming the first Canadian (and first North American woman) to win an Olympic medal in cross-country skiing. She followed that up with Olympic silver in 2006, and a record 17 World Cup podium finishes. In the final year of her career, she finished 2nd in the Overall World Cup Standings.
On retirement, Beckie was elected to the International Olympic Committee’s Athlete Commission for an 8-year term. A widely respected leader in anti-doping, Beckie has served as Chair of the World Anti-Doping Agency’s Athlete Committee since 2013. She is recognized globally for her advocacy and work on behalf of athletes’ rights and clean, fair, doping-free sport.

Beckie is an Officer of the Order of Canada, and an inducted member of the Canadian Sports Hall of Fame, Canadian Olympic Hall of Fame and the Canadian Ski Hall of Fame. Beckie holds Honorary Doctor of Laws from the University of Alberta, and University of B.C., and frequently works for CBC Sports as a broadcast analyst.

Beckie Scott is the founder and CEO of Spirit North, an organization working to improve the lives of Indigenous children and youth through the transformative power of sport and play. Now working across five provinces, and reaching over 6,000 Indigenous children and youth annually, Spirit North is recognized as one of Canada’s leading sport-for-social-development organizations.
