Woolstencroft wins her second downhill in as many days

 


 

SESTRIERE, ITA (January 21 , 2010) – As the speed events continued in Sestriere, ITA today with a downhill event, Lauren Woolstencroft (North Vancouver, BC) won another downhill race making it her fifth IPC World Cup win in two weeks with a time of one minute 20.00. 

 

“It’s always good to be back on top of the podium. So far this season, I’ve had really good races and okay races. The competition level in the ladies standing category is very strong and it is not easy to win in any case. It makes me cherish every win just a little bit more every time,” said Woolstencroft from her hotel room in Sestriere.

 

Despite a flu bug that has been spreading amongst the athletes, Woolstencroft believes they are staying on top of their game.

 

“The team had a couple of rough days lately with the amount of travelling we had to do and the flu bug that has been going around but we still performed well and kept our focus. That just shows how ready and focused the athletes in the team are,” added Woolstencroft.

 

Also in the ladies standing category, Karolina Wisniewska (Vancouver, BC) finished in third place with a time of 1:23.50. This made it her second podium finish in as many days as she finished second yesterday, also in the downhill event. This is her third top three result since her comeback in 2007.

 

In the same category, Melanie Schwartz (Toronto, ON) finished in 11th place.

 

Christopher Williamson (Markham, ON) and his guide Nick Brush (Panorama, BC) finished in second place behind Spain’s Jon Santacana with a time of 1:13.76. The dynamic duo finished on top of the podium in yesterday’s downhill.

 

Viviane Forest (Edmonton, AB) along with her guide Lindsay Debou (Whistler, BC) finished in third place behind Slovakia’s Henrieta Farkasova and Anna Kuliskova from Czech Republic. She crossed the finish line with a time of 1:25.64.

 

In the men’s sitting category, Josh Dueck (Vernon, BC) finished in sixth place with a time of 1:15.15, making it his first downhill points in that event this year since he did not finish the yesterday’s downhill race.

 

In the men’s standing category Matt Hallat improved yesterday’s position by one spot finishing 12th in today’s event. Jeff Dickson (Toronto, ON) finished in 20th place.

 

Andrea Dziewior (Nanaimo, BC) and Sam Danniels (Whistler, BC) did not start the race.

 

Kimberly Joines (Rossland, BC) and Morgan Perrin (Whistler, BC) were not able to finish today’s downhill race.
