Canada took two podium places at Innichen in men’s ski cross on Saturday, with Dave Duncan winning gold and Brady Leman finishing third in Italy.

In the women’s event, Kelsey Serwa won the silver medal, making it three weekend World Cup medals for Canada in ski cross.

Duncan, Leman and Serwa joined Erik Guay (gold – downhill) and Jan Hudec (silver – super-G) as medallists on a weekend of podium results for Alpine Canada.

Alex Fiva of Switzerland finished between Duncan and Leman.  Fellow Swiss Fanny Smith was the top woman in ski cross, with Anna Holmlund of Sweden finishing behind Canada’s Serwa.

Canadian Marielle Thompson, who already won a World Cup event this season, was fifth and currently sits second in the women’s World Cup ski cross standings.

Slopestyle skier Dara Howell was also golden on Saturday, breaking up an American sweep at the Copper Mountain Grand Prix in Colorado.

In Lake Louise, Alberta Dominique Maltais won a World Cup silver medal in snowboard cross and remains the overall leader this season in her discipline.
