Gold and Silver for Canada in Skeleton
Congratulations to Duff Gibson and Jeff Pain. Outstanding performance.
Canada wins Gold, Silver in Skeleton
Duff Gibson won the first significant skeleton race in Turin and on Friday he won his last significant skeleton race in Turin to win Olympic gold.
The 39-year-old expressed a desire to "go out on top" at the Torino Games, and he did just that, winning the competition with a combined time in two runs of one minute, 55.88 seconds.
Most observers figured if a Canadian was going to top the podium it was going to be Jeff Pain, the World Cup leader. Pain finished with a silver to give the country its first 1-2 podium placing at the Games.
