      Olympic Bound athletes at the top of the FIS Regional Series Standings after Canmore

      Familiar names lay claim to the top spots of the FIS Regional Series after the OWG and U23 Selection races wrapped up in Canmore. 

      Jesse Cockney highlighted his fitness level and flexibility as an all-round skier as he picked up gold and silver over the final sprint and skiathlon competitions of the Trials.  He has a small lead over Graham Killick who turned in a stellar performance in the 30 km skiathlon to add to his silver in the 15 km individual start event earlier in the week.  Kevin Sandau moved into third just ahead of Patrick Stewart-Jones.

      Mens Standings

      On the women's side, Heidi Widmer edged ahead of Emily Nishikawa based on her strong sprint performances over the double OWG Sprint Selection competitions.  Widmer also had an individual 10km win earlier in the season to compliment her sprint performances at the Nordic Centre.  Nishikawa is in second spot and Amanda Ammar moved into third spot after she tore up the field in the Women's 15 km skiathlon at the Trials.

      The Haywood NorAm Series continues on January 29 in the National Capital Region as the Eastern Canadian Organizing Committee hosts a 3 race event at the Nakkertok Ski Club in Cantley.
