KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia – Marielle Thompson and Kelsey Serwa finished 1-2 for Canada in women's skicross Friday, giving their country bookend gold-silver performances in Olympic freestyle skiing.
Freestyle opened Feb. 8 with sisters Justine and Chloe Dufour-Lapointe of Montreal finishing 1-2 in moguls.
This marked Thompson's third and biggest win of the season.
The final pitted the four fastest women in qualifying. Thompson, ranked third, took an early lead against the first-ranked Serwa and never let it slip.
Ophelie David of France wiped out about two-thirds of the way down the course, which gave the bronze to Sweden's Anna Holmlund.
