Canada settles for bronze

Red Mountain Racer Soleil Patterson and Team Canada U16 men took third at the Whistler Cup on the weekend.

Red Mountain Racer Soleil Patterson and the rest of Team Canada U16 men and women from Ontario, Quebec, Alberta and British Columbia were not able to defend the Nations’ Cup title on the weekend.

The Austrian Team took the title with 312 points, second place went to Norway with 152, and Canada was third with a total of 86 points.

Patterson had her best race on Friday when she finished sixth in the super-G in a time of 1:06.80. However, in Saturday’s giant slalom Patterson did not finish, and placed 13th out of more than 70 skiers on Sunday in the slalom.

Quebec’s Beatrix Lever won the Nancy Greene award for the best performance by a U16 female skier with a fourth place finish in the super-G Friday.

Madeline Sullivan of Ontario won the Nancy Greene award for U14 for a first-place finish in dual slalom. The Dave Murray award for top male skier went to Max Kirshenlatt of Whistler for a third place in the super-G and U14’s Will Kornya of Ontario who took first place in slalom.

In the U14 event,  the Japanese team was victorious earning 169.5 points, followed by the Ontario 1 team in second with 133.5 points, and the BC 1 team coming a very close third with 130.5 points.
