Canada Secures 2nd Gold Medal at World U23 Cross-Country Ski Championships in Mixed Relay Event

Canada Takes Home Another Gold Medal at Under-23 Cross-Country Ski Championships with a Thrilling Mixed Relay Victory

Canada won its second gold medal at the world under-23 cross-country ski championships in Planica, Slovenia with their victory in the mixed relay. The team, consisting of Derek Deuling, Jasmine Drolet, Mac Hollman, and Lilian Gagnon, celebrated their win in Slovenia over runner-up France and Sweden, who took the bronze medal.

The Canadian team trailed France and Sweden after the first two legs of Sunday’s 20k relay. However, Mac Hollman closed a 15-second gap on the front-runners to just 2.2 seconds when he handed off to Lilian Gagnon for the anchor leg. Gagnon made her move over the final 150 metres in a sprint to the line, edging France by seven-tenths of a second and Sweden by eight-tenths.

This second gold medal win comes after Schmidt’s victory in the women’s sprint on Tuesday. Gagnon, Schmidt, and the rest of the Canadian team continue to showcase their skill and determination on the world stage, solidifying their presence as a force to be reckoned with in international cross-country ski competitions.
