Bronze medal for Canada

Vernon's own Curt Minard earned his first World Cup medal of the season Friday, nabbing a bronze medal in the upper limb category at the first of two Para-snowboardcross World Cups in Finland.

Minard led the charge for the Canadians, winning Canada’s only medal of the weekend, as well as posting a respectable 6th place finish during Saturday's World Cup.

“I love representing Canada, it’s always an honour. To be able to bring a bronze medal home on the World Cup stage was an amazing feeling,” said Minard, who is looking to qualify for his first Paralympic Winter Games. “I am feeling confident in my riding this Paralympic season and I’m looking forward to pushing my limits and bringing more hardware home for Canada”.

The team will now return home for some rest and relaxation before heading to December’s Dew Tour in Breckenridge, Colo. for a Banked Slalom NorAM competition.
