The world’s top-ranked women’s ski cross racer will be at Big White this weekend for a public appearance.

Kelowna’s Kelsey Serwa will be at the Village Centre Mall on Saturday at 3 p.m. to sign autographs and give away free posters.

The 21-year-old Serwa will be supported by the Big White Junior Racers.

“Our young racers are all very excited about meeting her and can’t wait for training to end on Saturday,” said Blair Ireland, guest services director at Big White.

Serwa, the granddaughter of Big White co-founder Cliff Serwa, grew up in the Big White Junior Racers program. She advanced through the ranks of the Canadian alpine skiing team before switching to ski cross racing in 2008.

Serwa has three podium finishes on the World Cup freestyle circuit this season and leads the overall ski cross standings.

She won gold at a World Cup race last week in Alpe d’Huez, France last week and has added silvers at two other events this season.

Serwa is preparing for the upcoming X-Games which kick off in Aspen, Colorado next week.

Medal for Jackson…

West Kelowna’s Beau Jackson fought his way to a silver medal at the Western Canada Age Class Wrestling Tournament.

Last weekend in Kamloops, the Grade 8 student from Constable Neil Bruce was second in the school boys 75 kg division. Jackson represented the Central Okanagan Wrestling Association.
