  • Print

NAGANO, Japan - Ziggy Cowan of Banff, Alta., captured a bronze medal in snowboardcross at the world junior snowboard championships Thursday.

The podium performance came after dense fog had postponed the race to Thursday.

"It has been a long couple of days. I am a little disappointed with the bronze as I really wanted to win," Cowan said. "The course was really hard, but by the time we were running heats, it had softened up."

Oceane Pozzo of France won the race ahead of teammate and silver medallist Aurore Savoye.

Michelle Brodeur of Calgary was eliminated in the first elimination round to finish 12th. Carly Thorpe of Nakusp, B.C., was 16th.

Dan Csokonay of Calgary finished seventh in the men's snowboardcross, won by Italy's Omar Visintin. Michael Haemmerle of Austria won the silver, while American Roger Carver took the bronze.

Calgary's Christopher Robanske was 17th, while Robert Ritchie of Edmonton was 23rd.
