Canada adds two more podiums at IPC World Cup in Queras, FRA
QUERAS, FRA (January 14th, 2008)
The result continues an impressive streak for Joines, who has a total of eight consecutive gold medals in the Ladies sitting category this World Cup season.
Even though Joines won the race by just under five seconds, with a total two-run time of two minutes and 18.40 seconds, she was still thinking about how to improve in tomorrow’s GS.
“I’m definitely going to turn earlier and keep my line a little tighter to the panels tomorrow,” said Joines.
Lauren Woolstencroft (Calgary, AB / North Vancouver, BC) captured second place in the Ladies standing category. Woolstencroft (2:15.77) was less than a second behind the winner, Andrea Rothfuss from Germany who finished in a two-run time of 2:14.88. Andrea Dziewior (Nanaimo, BC) finished in eighth.
In the Ladies visually impaired category, Carly Grigg (Victoria, BC) and guide Julie-Christine Roy-Ruel (Lachenaie, QC) secured a fourth place finish.
The IPC World Cup races in Queras, FRA continue tomorrow with a giant slalom. There will be a day off after that followed by two days of slalom races.
