Sport: Ski jumping

Age: 20

Hometown: Red Deer, Alta.

Accomplishments:

  • Four career top-30 finishes on the Continental Cup circuit.

Interesting Fact: When he isn’t flying through the air on his skis Rowley has two other jobs: He works as a bar manager and a motorcycle technician.

Chances: Rowley’s Sochi experience will be primarily about absorbing the experience, not focusing on the results as he is not projected to get anywhere close to the podium.
