Rossland’s Ian Lockey is back on the national snowboard team.

Canada Snowboard named four athletes to its 2014 Para National Team, and the Rossland resident was one of them.

Lockey and his teammates will make history by competing in the first ever snowboard event at the Paralympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia next year. The sport was officially added to the 2014 Paralympics Games in May 2012 after years of effort on the part of Canada Snowboard and the rest of the snowboarding community.

The team will be lead by 2009 Para Snowboard World Champion Tyler Mosher, who made a previous appearance at the Paralympics as a Cross-Country skier before concentrating solely on snowboarding.

The Paralympic Games will be held from March 7-16.

The team also includes
John Leslie (Armprior, ON), Tyler Mosher (Whistler, BC) and Michelle Salt (Calgary, AB).
