Ski cross: Phelan, Serwa finish 2-3 in Idre Fjall

It was a double podium finish for Team Canada on Sunday in Sweden, with friends Brittany Phelan and Kelsey Serwa finishing in second and third place, respectively.

Only Swiss skier Fanny Smith was able to beat the Canadians. This is the first podium for both skiers this season, but is Phelan’s third career World Cup podium, and Serwa’s 20th.

Post-race, Serwa commented on her performance: “I feel pretty good, this season has been a full start for me, missing out on the pre-training sessions. I knew it was going to be a slow climb up and sure enough this is our fifth World Cup of the season, and it finally feels good to be on the podium, most importantly alongside my best bud Britt Phelan!”
