Canadian para skier Frederique Turgeon wins 2nd straight slalom gold
19-year-old skied to a commanding win with a 2-run time of 2:16.96
Canadian para skier Frederique Turgeon scored a gold medal in the final slalom event of the 2019 Para Alpine World Cup opener in Zagreb, Croatia on Thursday.
"My leg was very tired, and I felt my second run was slow," said Turgeon. "The softer snow conditions make it harder for me to stay balanced, but I'm still very happy with what I did."
The 19-year-old also won gold on Wednesday in the women slalom standing event.
