Regarding Canadian Freestyle Ski Association’s 9-Medal World Championship Performance

TORONTO – Today, the Canadian Olympic Committee released the following statement following gold and silver-medal performances at the FIS Freestyle World Ski Championships in Voss, Norway from Kaya Turski (Montreal, QC) and Dara Howell (Huntsville, ON) respectively. The two podium finishes contribute to a total of nine medals for Canada: six in mogul skiing, one in aerials and Saturday’s two in slopestyle. The Canadian Freestyle Ski Association’s overall performance at these championships includes three world titles and six medals.

“Canada has earned the world’s attention in Freestyle Skiing as Kaya and Dara today emphasized their capabilities to stand atop the podium. What they accomplished on the world championship stage bolstered this country’s reputation for world-class excellence in this sport. I’m extremely proud to congratulate them and the Canadian Freestyle Ski Association on behalf of the Canadian Olympic Committee.”
-Marcel Aubut, President, Canadian Olympic Committee

“I am absolutely thrilled for all our freestyle skiers. Kaya and Dara performed above expectations today to join an elite Canadian group at the top of the world and I’m so proud of them. As the team works together in preparation for the Sochi 2014 Winter Games, all of Canada’s athletes can look back on today with tremendous pride and motivation.”
