According to CBC Sports on Wednesday, Justin Snith and Tristan Walker finished in fourth place in men's doubles luge.

Snith and Walker posted a time of 1:39.84, and were .05 seconds back of the Latvian duo of Andris and Juris Sics. Tobias Wendl and Tobias Arlt of Germany won the gold medal with a time of 1:38.933 and Andreas and Wolfgang Linger of Austria won the silver medal with a time of 1:39.455.

Even though Snith and Walker were one place off the podium in this interesting sporting event, they will have immense momentum heading into Thursday's mixed relay luge competition, where Snith and Walker will be joined by fellow Calgarians Alex Gough and Sam Edney.

Canada is ranked second in the world in mixed relay luge, and the Calgary foursome is expected to challenge Italy, Austria and the United States for the silver medal. No Canadian has ever won a medal in the sport of luge in the history of the Olympic Winter Games.
