ACC Athletes Competing at the 2006 Winter Olympics

The ACC would like to wish good luck to our winter Olympic athletes who are taking part in the 2006 games in Torino.


Patrick Biggs who has been training at the ACC for a number of years is making his first appearance at the Olympics. Pat started at the ACC as a member of the NCO ski team back in 1999 and has progressed to the National Team. We know based on his work ethic at the ACC he will do well. Good luck Pat!


Jeff Bean has been at the ACC for the past 2 years. A world champion aerialist for Canada, Jeff experienced a very serious injury almost 2 years ago. A bad crash resulted in a broken bone in his neck. Jeff was very lucky to have survived the crash and went through intensive rehab to get back on the snow. He has worked closely with Coach Goldenberg in building his core, leg strength, and neck stability to get him back on his game. He is favored for a medal in Torino, we are sure his drive and determination will get him on the podium. Good luck Jeff!


Ryan Semple started training at the ACC last year, utilizing his program from the National Downhill team. Ryan was able to demonstrate excellent drive and core strength during his workouts this past year. We are hoping he enjoys his time in Italy. Good luck Ryan!
