World JRs Steph Irwin Leads Canadians on Opening Day


French skier wins ladies race on Day 1 in Chamonix

 

REGION MONT BLANC, FRA Stephanie Irwin (Calgary, AB), a member of Canada’s national development team since 2008, was the top Canadian as the FIS Alpine World Junior Ski Championships got underway today in France.

 

Irwin finished the ladies super-G in 10th place as blue skies and frigid temperatures as low as -18°C greeted 400 of the top junior ski racers in the world in Chamonix, FRA.

 

“Steph skied really well today,” said Canada’s World Junior Team Captain Benoit Lalande. “She was the second skier down and was hanging around the top five for a while before ending up in tenth. To bring your best in a major competition like the World Junior’s against the best competition in her age, it’s a great result.”

 

Marine Gauthier and Jeromine Geroudet, both of France, made it a great start for the host nation, finishing in the top two spots in the ladies SG in Megeve, FRA. Gauthier won in one minute 32.21 seconds with her teammate just 0.08s behind. Austria’s Michelle Morik was third.

 

Catherine Morel (Québec, QC) finished 39th.
