Bronze Finish For Curt Minard In Finland

Curt Minard

Curt Minard (Vernon, BC) grabbed his first World Cup medal of the season on Friday, nabbing a bronze medal in the upper limb category at the first of two Para-snowboardcross World Cups in Finland. Curt led the charge for the Canadians, grabbing Canada’s sole medal of the weekend, as well as posting a respectable 6th place finish during Saturday’s World cup.

Several Canadians managed to find themselves within the top ten during the course of both World cups, with Oshawa, ON’s Andrew Genge barely missing out on the podium on the second day of competition with a 4th place finish. Alex Massie (Barrie, ON) also stood out, finishing the first day in 7th after being narrowly edged out by the USA’s Evan Strong in the Quarterfinal.

“I love representing Canada, it’s always an honour. To be able to bring a bronze medal home on the World Cup stage was an amazing feeling”, said Curt Minard, who is looking to qualify for his first Paralympic Winter Games. “I am feeling confident in my riding this Paralympic season and I’m looking forward to pushing my limits and bringing more hardware home for Canada”.
