Hall of Famer
In the early years of a sport dominated by Canadian athletes, the name of Lucie Barma was among the best known on the international freestyle competitive circuit. Born in Quebec City, Lucie became a member of the Canadian Freestyle Ski Team in 1979 and would remain with the team for 12-years until 1990. In a long competitive career, her dedication, versatility and consistently high placings produced results for which she, and all Canadians, can be justly proud.
At the Canadian Freestyle Championships, she won Gold medals in one or more of the freestyle disciplines, aerials, moguls and ballet, for eight consecutive years from 1979 to 1986. In all, she won 18-Canadian Freestyle Gold medals: 8 Ballet, 4 Moguls, 3 Aerials and 3 Combined events.
Her record was no less impressive in international competition. On the World Cup circuit, she won 13-medals in Ballet, 1 Gold, 4 Silver and 8 Bronze. In World Cup Mogul events she could also compete with the best freestyle skiers in the world winning four Bronze medals in 1984
and placing in the top ten in 18-events between 1982 and 1984.
In the Ballet event at the World Freestyle Championships and the World Cup Grand Prix, she won Bronze medals in both 1986 and 1989. Still a Demonstration Event, she narrowly missed a podium finish to place 4th in Ballet at the 1988 XV Olympic Winter Games held in Calgary, Alberta.
Lucie remains active in the skiing community volunteering at competitive events and encouraging her two sons, Olivier and Antoine, as they progress in the Quebec Freestyle Program.
