Trygstad-Saari and Swenson win Rossland Skate Races

Kristina Trygstad-Saari won the first continental cup race of here career today, taking the 15km skate event in wet snowy conditions. She narrowly beat Jeannie Wall by 5.3 seconds with Sarah Konrad third at 18.5 seconds. Daria Gaiazova and Tasha Betcherman, both Canadians, rounded out the top five.

On the men's side, Carl Swenson won his second race of the year, beating Kris Freeman by 16.7 seconds in the 30km skate race. The snow turned to rain shortly after the men started, and miserable wet and cold conditions made the race difficult for both racers and coaches. Lars Flora finished third while Andrew Johnson and David Chamberlain rounded out the top five.

George Grey was the top Canadian, followed by Guillaume Joly in 11th and Gordon Jewett in 12th.
