Larisa Yurkiw Ontario's Georgian Peaks Ski Club in Ontario finished in
one minute, 18.36 seconds to take gold for the women.
"Its been a while since I put a super G run together like that - it was
wild, but lots of fun," says Yurkiw. "The wind was strong in the start,
but calmed right down after the second gate and really wasn't a problem
all the way down."
Because the race didn't start until 11:30am, the men's race was late,
the sun dipping behind the hills and visibility marred by near darkness.
In the end though, Jeffrey Frisch of Mt. Tremblant, Quebec blew the rest
of the field away.
"That was gnarly!" says Frisch. "You really have to be on your skis the
whole time to ride the bumps because it's kind of hard to see them."
