CANADA’S JUNIOR LUGE TEAM BACK ON TRACK IN THE NEW YEAR WITH THREE TOP-15 FINISHES

Calgary’s Arianne Jones slides into top-sixCanada’s junior luge squad is back on track and back in the top-10, at the first Junior World Cup of the new year in Königssee, Germany. Calgary’s Arianne Jones posted a sixth-place finish in the youth A women’s category, for her third top-10 of the season.

“It was a great race for me today,” said Jones. “I only made a couple of small mistakes, so I was happy with my result.”

Andrea Peterson, also of Calgary, narrowly missed the top-10 in the junior women’s category, completing the two-run race in 13th. Fellow Calgarian, Denae Delcourt did not start the race today.

Doubles tandem Cameron Gunn and David Adair secured a 10th-place finish, an impressive result for their first race down the tricky Königssee track.

“This is our first time on this track, so we’re pretty satisfied with the result,” said Gunn. “We had some trouble with our exit out of the Kriesel turn on both runs, but our starts were consistent and the rest of the two runs were pretty good.”

They will both try their hand separately tomorrow in the singles event, along with teammates Brendan Hauptman, Stefan Rath and Tristan Walker.
