According to the International Ski Federation website, David Duncan of London, Ontario won his second World Cup men's ski cross event in two days on Sunday in San Candido, Italy.

Duncan not only moved to first place in the 2013-14 World Cup men's ski cross standings, but also qualified him a spot for the Canadian Olympic team at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi.

Andreas Matt of Austria won the silver medal and Daniel Bohnacker of Germany won the bronze medal.

For Duncan, the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi will be extra special because he broke his collarbone during the training run for the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver and was unable to compete. Duncan will also try to become the first Canadian male to win an Olympic medal in ski cross. At the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, Christopher Del Bosco of Montreal finished in a disappointing fourth place.

In the women's competition, Marielle Thompson of Whistler, British Columbia finished in second place. Thompson remains in first place in the World Cup rankings. Sunday's winner was Katrin Mueller of Switzerland with Heidi Zacher of Germany winning bronze.
