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.”
