LAKE PLACID, N.Y. — Canada’s Alex Gough captured the 10th World Cup medal of her career after sliding to the bronze at the Luge World Cup in Lake Placid, N.Y. on Friday afternoon.

Building on her thrilling bronze-medal finish at the World Championships last week at the Whistler Sliding Centre, the 25-year-old Calgarian put down two consistent runs to clock a time of 1:28.748 on the icy chute that winds its way down Mount Van Hoevenberg.

“It definitely was a good day. I had two solid runs and I am really happy with how things went,” said Gough, who has two World Championship bronze medals in her career. “I have been working on my consistency all year. I feel like I am a lot more calm with how I handle things, and that helped me today.”

The World Cup wraps up on Saturday in Lake Placid with men’s singles and the team relay events.
