A day after taking home her first ever World Cup medal, Sandrine Hamel (Saint-Sauveur, QC) capped off the Landgraaf Para Snowboard Banked Slalom World Cup with another silver medal performance. The Netherlands’ Lisa Bunschoten and Renske Van Beek took home the gold and bronze respectively.

Hamel posted her best time of 48.52 seconds on her first run, and that was all she needed to secure her second medal in as many days.  On the men’s side, John Leslie (Arnprior, ON) was barely a second off the podium, and capped off a strong performance in the Men’s LL2 category by finishing in 4th.

The Para snowboard team will now return to Canada before heading to Breckenridge, Colorado for the Dew Tour Adaptive Banked Slalom on December 13th.
