A lecturer in the Sprott School of Business, Al Pilcher is a two-time Olympic athlete who holds the best-ever result for a Canadian at the World Championships in cross country skiing.
Pilcher, a member of Canada’s national team from 1984 to 1992, competed in the 1988 and 1992 Olympic Games in relay and 15- and 30-kilometer races. At the World Championships in Lahti, Finland, in 1989, his 7th place finish in the 50-kilometer race set the bar for Canadians and has yet to be surpassed. He was twice the Canadian Nordic Champion and the North American Nordic Champion.
Pilcher is still active in cross country skiing, triathlon and road cycling.
