Coquitlam's Kiera Leung turned slick slopes into a silver medal this week.
The skier finished second in moguls at the NorAm event in Val St. Come, Que.
That she medalled was a great result - as she was also Canada's only medallist in the moguls. Leung was mainly focusing on making her return to competitive skiing a smooth one, after missing three years due to a rough road of rehabbing, following two separate knee operations.
"The silver is a total plus, I'm just happy to be skiing," Leung said in a press release.
It was her second consecutive podium finish in dual moguls NorAm competition. She chose to line up against U.S.'s Keaton McCargo, who went on to win the event.
Two days earlier, Leung placed ninth in single moguls.
A week earlier, the 21-year-old collected her first NorAm podium result with a silver in moguls.
Shaking off a rough first run, Leung was surprised to advance to the final stage.
"They let me into [the] finals. So I picked up my speed and went for it a little more because I had nothing to lose," she said. "It's my first (time) competing in three years."
Leung has been a member of the Canadian national C moguls team for three years.
PORT MOODY SKIER SCORES GIANT SLALOM BRONZE
Picking up her first medal of 2013, Port Moody's Kelsey Voss was in fine form at this week's Red Mountain Giant Slalom event in Rossland.
Voss, who trains with the Hemlock Ski Team, collected the bronze in a two-run under-16 girls giant slalom race.
"It felt amazing," Voss said in a press release. "I had an extremely fast run, but the girls that were ahead of me are extremely fast too. I had a calm, clear mind and I was totally focused on my task."
Sister Katrina was also in the competition, placing 10 th out of 27 racers in the u-14 girls giant slalom event. The sisters are graduates of the Nancy Greene Ski League.
