Default Canada captures three medals in freestyle skiing at NorAm Cup

MISSOULA, Mont. (CP) - Canadians Jackie Brown and Nathalie Bazin won silver and bronze medals in women's moguls and Renaud Jacques-Dagenais took bronze in men's moguls Friday in Nor-Am Cup freestyle ski action.
Brown, of Cambridge, Ont., was second with 24.09 points, while Bazin, of Quebec City, finished third with 24.02. American Kayla Snyderman took the gold with 24.28 points.


"I'm just trying to keep positive," said Brown. "I know if I continue to train hard my results will be more consistent.
"Today I changed the order of jumps on my run and that seemed to work quite well. It felt good to be on the podium."
The bronze was Bazin's third consecutive medal in Nor-Am competition and a sixth straight top-five finish.
"I wasn't pleased with my performance in the preliminaries, my jumps and landings were not very good," said Bazin, who came into the final in sixth. "So I improved on that in the final and also went a second faster."


Jennifer Simm of Prince George, B.C., finished fifth, Henriane Latour of Lac-Beauport, Que., placed sixth, Frederique Bonenfant-Lingat of Ste-Adele, Que., ended up in ninth and Calgary's Chelsea Henetiuk placed 10th.
On the men's side, Jacques-Dagenais, of Prevost, Que., was third with 25.37 points.
American Bryon Wilson won with 26.42 points while compatriot Landon Gardner was second with 25.56.
The bronze Jacques-Dagenais' first career Nor-Am medal.


"It's a big day for me, I can't wait to phone home and tell my parents," said Jacques-Dagenais, 19. "I raced to the utmost of my abilities in the final. I've worked hard on my skiing basics this season."


Leonard Latour of Lac-Beauport, Que., was fifth, while Garrett Simm of Prince George, B.C., finished 11th.
