Christine Nesbitt is not letting up.

The 2010 Olympic champion Nesbitt captured her third individual medal of the young season on Sunday at the World Cup in Astana, Kazakhstan. The two-time Olympian raced to her second gold of the season in the 1,500 metre race in a time of one minute and 57.18 seconds.

Shortly afterward, the London, ON., native teamed-up with Ivanie Blondin and Brittany Schussler to win the women’s team pursuit in a time of 2:58.40, which was 2.15 seconds faster than their nearest competitors, the Koreans.

Hamelin continues podium streak
Two-time Olympic gold medallist Charles Hamelin’s World Cup podium streak was extended this weekend after the native of Sainte-Julie, Que., captured bronze in the 1,500 metres and followed it up with a silver medal in the 500-metre ISU World Cup #3 in Nagoya, Japan.

Hamelin’s impressive streak includes a podium finish in every race, compiling four silver and two bronze World Cup medals on the season. The two-time Olympian is one of Canada’s most decorated winter athletes and now has a total of 18 gold, 17 silver and 20 bronze medals in 44 World Cups.

Gough blazes to luge bronze
Two-time Olympian Alex Gough slid to her second-straight bronze medal of the season at the Luge World Cup in Konigssee, Germany after posting a two-run time of 1:41.601.

“I have been sick all week, and was just trying to get through that and then pull good starts and have two consistent runs today,” said Gough who was also third last year in Konigssee. “There is a dead flat start on this track which definitely plays to a German advantage, but I did my job of reaching my potential today. I’m happy to be on the podium again.”

Gough was the lone nom-German athletes to place inthe top-five of the women’s race. Natalie Geisenberger finished on top with a time of 1:41.450, while Tatjana Hufner celebrated the silver medal at 1:41.481.
