According to the 2013 Winter Universiade website, Canadian Olympic gold medalist Guillaume Bastille of Riviere-du-Loup, Quebec stepped on to the podium twice on Friday at the 2013 Winter Universiade in Trentino, Italy.

Bastille, who was part of the Canadian men's short track speed skating relay team that won a gold medal at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver, won a silver medal in the men's team relay and won a bronze medal in the men's 1000m.

In the relay, Bastille won his silver medal alongside Vincent Cournoyer of Boucherville, Quebec, Yoan Gauthier of Riviere-du-Loup, Quebec, Patrick Duffy of Oakville, Ontario and Sebastien Landry of Montreal, Quebec. Hungary was the somewhat surprising gold medalist with a time of 6:46.953, a mere seven one-thousandths of a second faster than the Canadians at 6:46.96. The Russians meanwhile finished in third place with a time of 6:55.547.

In the men's 1000m event, Bastille finished with a time of 1:25.777, almost a full second faster than fourth place finisher Fu Xu of China. The South Koreans finished first and second. Jinkyu Noh posted a time of 1:25.506 and Cheonho Um posted a time of 1:25.642.

Team Canada now has won six medals at the 2013 Winter Universiade in Trentino, Italy. They have won three silver medals and three bronze medals. Five of the six medals have come in short track speed skating.
