Canada’s female development team all but swept a Nor-Am at Mont Sainte Anne, Quebec last week, winning eight out of a possible 12 medals in four contests.

In the first giant slalom Megan McJames of the U.S. took gold, while Emilie Desforges and Shona Rubens placed second and third for Canada. Whistler’s Alison Leighton was 50 th .

Day two of the giant slalom was close to being the same, with McJames once again taking gold, while Rubens and Desforges swapped places on either side of the podium to place second and third respectively. Leighton was 50 th once again.

Canada picked up its only gold of the weekend in slalom with Megan Ryley finishing first and Rubens picking up her second silver. Kiley Staples of the U.S. was third.

In the last event, another slalom, it was a U.S. sweep. The closest Canadian was Rubens in fourth place.
