Canadian men go 1-2 in snowboarding PGS

TELLURIDE, Colo. – Canadians Jasey Jay Anderson and Michael Lambert have swept the top two spots in snowboarding World Cup parallel giant slalom races.

Russia’s Alena Zavarzina won on the women’s side Thursday, while Adam Smith was the top U.S. finisher in 14th.

This was the second of five Olympic qualifying events for the United States. No Americans finished in the top 10 in either event. On Thursday, one of America’s top women, Michelle Gorgone, was disqualified after her binding broke.

Anderson and Lambert join Matthew Morison, who won Tuesday, as the third Canadian to finish on the podium this week in Telluride – a good sign for the country hosting the Olympics in February.
