Crawford takes Silver in Italy Downhill

Canada’s’s Jack Crawford reached his second alpine skiing World Cup podium of the season grabbing downhill silver in Bormio, Italy.

Crawford’s time of one minute 55.08 seconds left him 0.4 seconds behind Austrian gold medallist Vincent Kriechmayr, who collected his 14th career World Cup downhill victory. Norway’s Aleksander Aamodt Kilde finished 0.28 further back of Crawford in third.

The 25-year-old Crawford previously bagged downhill bronze in Beaver Creek, Colo., earlier in December. The Toronto native is also an Olympic bronze medallist after placing third in alpine combined in Beijing.

The result also marked Crawford’s fourth straight top-seven finish.

“I’m really happy with a second-place finish today,” said Crawford. “Moving into the new year, I couldn’t be happier than to be standing on the podium.”

Congratulations Jack!

Ski the World!
