After coming so close in 2014, North Bay native Tyler Nicholson learned today that he has achieved his dream.

Nicholson has been nominated to represent Canada at next month’s Winter Olympics in South Korea. He will compete in the slopestyle and big air snowboard events in PyeongChang after an announcement today by the Canadian Olympic Committee and Canada Snowboard.

The nomination process for the spots on the Olympic team includes approval by the selection committee administered by the COC in late January once all nominations are received from the various sports federations. The nominations have been put forward based on performance by athletes in the World Championship, FIS World Cup, and on the World Snowboard Tour.

Nicholson had an excellent 2017 season, earning his first-ever X Games medal, a silver, in slopestyle.
