Calgary, AB (December 20, 2019) – The weather did not cooperate in Val Gardena for the men’s super-G but Jack Crawford (Toronto, ON) made the best of it to finish in 17th spot. It was a career best performance for Crawford who had to endure multiple lengthy race interuptions due to fog before the race was ultimately called just before teammate Brodie Seger (North Vanocuver, BC) was to ski.
“I kept my head in a good place and when it was time to go I totally forgot about the wait and just skied the way I know how to. Conditions were dark and hard to see but the track stayed in great condition and I was able to take advantage” said Crawford of the delays.
It was another strong race from a youth athlete who has seen success this season, notably at the Lake Louise NorAm, which he won and in Beaver Creek where he came in 21st. “The season is going well. I am not far off the top 30 in super-G and I am excited to move forward into the rest of the season.”
Canadian teammates Dustin Cook (Ottawa, ON) and Ben Thomsen (Inveremere, BC) finished in 40th and 43rd respectively.
The team now gets ready for the downhill tomorrow..
