Tristan Walker along with doubles partner Justin Snith and the rest of the Canadian luge team are looking to make history at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi by bringing home Canada’s first Olympic medal in luge. At Vancouver 2010 Walker and Snith, both 18-years-old, were the youngest competitors in their field. No longer green, Walker has grown in his sport over the last four years and as recently as January 2014, won silver for the team relay of the World Cup race in Altenberg, Germany.
