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.
