From the Canadian Olympic Website:

Kevin Drury made his World Cup debut as a ski cross racer in December 2015. The season before, he had been the overall Nor-Am Cup champion in men’s ski cross. His first big World Cup breakthrough came at the Olympic test event of the Phoenix Snow Park in February 2016 when he finished fourth in his first appearance in a Big Final. A week later, he won the Small Final in Arosa, Switzerland to finish fifth overall. Those results helped to earn him a spot on the national team. In December 2014, he advanced to another World Cup Big Final, placing fourth in Montafon, Austria.

He ended the 2016-17 season ranked eighth in the ski cross World Cup standings, making him the number two Canadian man. Drury earned his first World Cup podium in December 2017. He finished second in the qualifying round in Arosa, which counted as the final standings after weather cancelled the elimination rounds.

Before becoming an elite ski cross racer, Drury enjoyed a successful collegiate career as an alpine skier at the University of Vermont. In 2011, he was the runner-up in the giant slalom at the NCAA national championships and was a First Team All-American in the slalom. After not competing in 2013, he earned NCAA All-American Second Team honours for slalom and giant slalom in 2014. Drury first represented Canada internationally in December 2012 in Nor-Am Cup events.
