Pascale Paradis won the bronze medal in the women’s 7.5km pursuit behind a pair of British Columbia skiers. Paradis skied the distance in a time of 26:26.1.

“So today felt really good on my skis and shooting was also good until my first standing, where I hit 1 out of 5. I pulled it together for the rest of the race and tried to keep my spirits up, and it ended up working really well!” said Paradis after the race. “I was very happy ending with the bronze medal. Another factor that played into the good skiing was the amazing wax tech, Beau [Thompson], who did a phenomenal job with making the whole Alberta teams skis very speedy, as well as the faster snow with the warmer weather. All in all, it was an extremely fun day.”

Alberta placed three skiers in the Top 5, with teammates Jenna Sherrington and Naomi Walch, both of Calgary, AB finished fourth and fifth respectively.

In the men’s pursuit, Alberta was kept off the podium with Thomas Hulsman of Airdrie, AB taking the fourth position, followed by Reid Lovstrom of Calgary, AB.

British Columbia took both gold medals of the pursuit races, earning four of six medals available on the day.
