After posting four top-20 results so far this season, you could tell that something great was bound to happen for Dustin Cook soon. That something occurred this past Thursday at the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships in Vail-Beaver Creek when Cook secured a silver medal in the super-g race. With his first podium result at a world cup or world championships, Cook will officially be able to call himself a Canadian Cowboy, and joins an illustrious group that includes Erik Guay, John Kuchera, Francois Bourque, Benjamin Thomsen, Jan Hudec, Mike Janyk and Manuel Osborne-Paradis. Congratulations Dustin!
Mikaël Kingsbury has now won 26 world cup titles, but going into this weekend he had never won a world cup single mogul event in his home province of Quebec. That all changed when Kingsbury beat out Australian Matt Graham to take home the gold at a world cup event in Val Saint-Côme over the weekend. On the women’s side, Chloé Dufour-Lapointe and Audrey Robichaud took home silver and bronze, respectively, en route to helping the Canadian team secure three out of six podium spots at the event.
Biathlon Canada’s Nathan Green had the best weekend of his young career, finishing 7th and 5th in world cup events in Nove Mesto, Czech Republic over the weekend. Behind some strong shooting, which saw Green shoot clean in back-to-back events, the young 2014 Olympian posted career best results, and proved that he is a podium threat on a Canadian team brimming with young talent.
The Alpine Canada Ski Cross Team went 1-2 in the men’s small final on back-to-back days in Arosa, Switzerland this past weekend, led by strong results from Olympian Chris Del Bosco. Tristan Tafel won the small final on Friday to finish fifth, while Del Bosco was right behind him in sixth. On Saturday it was Del Bosco’s time to lead, winning the small final ahead of teammate Brady Leman to help Canada secure fifth and sixth place finishes once again. With the strong weekend results, Del Bosco now moves into 10th place in the overall world cup standings, while Leman leads the way for Alpine Canada in 7th place overall.
