Gaiazova Cashes in at Italy's Marcialonga

Dasha Gaiazova scored big, placing third in yesterday's Marcialonga Ski Marathon in Val di Fiemme, Italy. Gaiazova finished 24 minutes behind women's winner Cristina Paluselli of Italy in the 72km classic race, with Lara Peyrot taking second place. Gaiazova's team mate Madeleine Williams finished 4th, one minute and 19 seconds behind Gaiazova. For their efforts, Gaiazova and Williams took home 1000 and 400 euros respectively.

In the men's race it was Czech skier Stanislav Rezac, winner of last year's Keskinada marathon in Canada who took home top honours. Rezac narrowly beat world marathon super star Gianantonio Zanetel of Italy by just 8 seconds with Marco Cattaneo, also of Italy taking third. The top Canadian man was National Disabled Team skier Brian McKeever who finished in 26th position, just under 12 minutes behind the winner.
