According to the Sochi 2014 website, Canadians won a gold and silver medal in the women's ski cross competition on Friday.

Marielle Thompson of Vancouver, British Columbia won a gold medal and Kelsey Serwa of Kelowna, British Columbia won the silver medal.

With the medals, Canada now has 22 medals (eight gold medals, ten silver medals and four bronze medals). They also moved into third place in the total medal standings behind the United States at 25 medals and Russia at 23 medals.

Anna Holmlund of Sweden meanwhile won the bronze medal.

Thompson delivered a dominant performance as she finished in first place in every round after the seeding portion. Serwa meanwhile came up clutch in the semi-final. She was trailing her competitors for the majority of the race, before she made an outstanding move near the bottom of the hill to squeak past Katrin Ofner of Austria and world champion Fanny Smith of Switzerland.

In the final, it was all Thompson and Serwa who got out ahead of Holmlund and France's Ophelie David early and soon created some significant separation. David also fell allowing Holmlund to move comfortably in for a medal.
