Gavin Hamilton

Blonde-haired, blue-eyed Gavin enjoys long walks in the park, chocolate truffle ice cream, and red wine on a blanket under starry skies. If you want to get in touch with him after reading that and checking out his picture, you can find him either killin' it on a long zone 4 interval session in Gatineau Park, or studying for his 4th-year biology exams at Carleton University. Gavin grew up in St. Catharines, and started skiing during his first year at Carleton - which means he's only been skiing for 4 years, which makes his results absolutely remarkable. In 2005-06, he won an Ontario University championship qualifier race, and placed 11th at National Championships in the University class. He was an OUA all-star in 2004-05 - yes, only his third year of skiing. Gavin plans on skiing for a bit longer after school, and is then thinking about pursuing either medical school or dentistry school. This is Gavin's second year on XC Ottawa, and we've enjoyed having him around - we hope he stays longer (and so do the girls).
