GAGNON AND SIMMERLING WIN IN SOUTH AMERICAN CUP DEBUTS



CATEDRAL, ARG (August 21st, 2007) – Reigning Coupe Pontiac GMC Cup overall women’s champion Marie-Michèle Gagnon (Lac-Etchemin, QC) won a Slalom race yesterday in Catedral, ARG, as Canadian skiers continue to prepare for the upcoming alpine ski season by racing in South American Cup events.

It was Gagnon’s first FIS-sanctioned slalom race since competing in the Pontiac GMC Canadian Championships in March.

Canadian athletes competing this week in Catedral are part of Alpine Canada Alpin's 2010 Acceleration Team, a group of 13 high-potential female athletes added to the national team this summer to gain critical experience against tough world-calibre competition.

Eighteen-year-old Georgia Simmerling (West Vancouver, BC) won a Giant Slalom race Tuesday, her first event since being added to Canada’s summer training program earlier this summer.

“I have been skiing fast in training the last couple days here in Argentina and my expectations were to just keep skiing well. I didn’t expect to be in second place after the first run so I am very pleased with this performance,” Simmerling said.

The first run of the GS race actually took place Monday with the second run postponed until Tuesday because of snow and fog.

The South American Cup is a FIS-sanctioned race series with similarities to the Nor-Am Cup race circuit. Canada’s Patrick Biggs (Orleans, ON) won a Men’s South American Cup race earlier this month.
