IPC Finals Cpast team makes history winning IPC Nations Cup

IPC FINALS: CPAST TEAM MAKES HISTORY, WINNING IPC NATIONS CUP



Woolstencroft wins overall Crystal Globe in her category

 

WHISTLER, BC  

 

The Canadian team, which came to Whistler down to the powerful and deep Austrian team by just seven World Cup points, finished the season with 5,685 points to overtake the Austrian team with 5,063 points and the United States in third with 4,651.

 

This is a historic moment for para-alpine ski racing in Canada as Austria and the USA were previously the only two nations to ever win the Nations Cup.

 

“We are proud to win here in Canada. VANOC, Whistler/Blackcomb Ski Resort and the volunteers made this race a World Class event and surpassed every standard we have ever seen on the World Cup circuit,” said the CPAST Head Coach Jean-Sébastien Labrie. “Winning the Nations Cup Globe represents all the hard work from everyone, it’s a team effort so thanks to all the technicians, the physiotherapists, the coaches and the staff at ACA. In the last year we met our expectations leading to 2010 and we are very excited for next season.” 

 

Lauren Woolstencroft (North Vancouver, BC), in the ladies standing category, won the overall Crystal Globe in the ladies standing category for the third year in a row.

 

Woolstencroft won today’s slalom final race with a combined time of one minute 32.12 and grabbed the overall slalom Crystal Globe in the process. That gives Woolstencroft four discipline Crystal Globes in the 2008/09 season along with the overall title (she won the downhill, super G, giant slalom and slalom titles).

 

Woolstencroft won her 15th gold medal of the 2008/09 season today, winning 11 on the World Cup circuit and four during the 2009 IPC World Championships last February in Kangwon Land, KOR.

 

She is the most decorated athlete of the season of any nation. This is a career best for Woolstencroft, her previous best season being last year as she won a total of 13 IPC World Cup races.

 

“Winning the Nations Cup was what we were aiming for, and we knew that we had the talent to achieve that goal. That said, winning that Globe after all the work everyone has put to get here is just amazing, it’s a great feeling,” said Woolstencroft. “The team came in these Finals with a great spirit and we knew exactly what we had to do and that is what we did. This shows that we are ready for 2010.”

 

In the men’s sitting category, Josh Dueck (Vernon, BC) finished today’s SL in 8th place and Luke Donovan (Dalhousie, NB) finished 15th. This is Luke’s first slalom race on the World Cup circuit.

 

In the ladies standing category, Karolina Wisniewska (Vancouver, BC) and Arly Fogarty (Montreal, QC) finished 5th and 11th respectively. Melanie Schwartz (Toronto, ON), for the Canadian Development Team, did not finish.

 

In the men’s standing category Matt Hallat (Coquitlam, BC) finished 11th. Jeffrey Foss (Chase, BC) and James Binsfeld (King City, ON), from the Canadian Development Team finished 19th and 20th respectively.

  

This was the last event of the IPC World Cup Finals.

 

The CPAST team will be heading out to Sun Peaks, BC for the TELUS Canadian Para-Alpine Ski Championships from March 23 to 26.
