Biography

An Alberta native and cross-country skier since the age of five, Beckie Scott has a long history of competition, entering her first at only seven years old. Since attending the Junior National Championships in 1988, she has obtained a total of seventeen medals in World Cup events for cross-country skiing. Although she saw little success at her first Olympic Winter Games in 1998, she managed to win bronze in the Women’s 10km pursuit event in 2002 (the first Olympic medal won by a North American woman in cross-country skiing), a medal that was later upgraded to gold after the previous first and second place athletes, Olga Danilova and Larissa Lazutina respectively, failed drug tests. After winning a silver medal in the Women’s Team Sprint event at the 2006 Winter Games, she retired from the sport as Canada most decorated cross-country skier.

Since joining the World Anti-Doping Agency’s athlete committee in 2005, Scott has engaged herself in other aspects of sport, including volunteering her time for UNICEF and Right to Play. In 2006 she was elected as an athlete member of the IOC and joined the 2010 Vancouver Organizing Committee’s board of directors the same year. She holds a Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Waterloo. She is married to retired American cross-country skier Justin Wadsworth.
