Brady Leman wins silver for his country in Ski Cross:
Canadian Brady Leman got the silver medal in the men’s ski cross competition at the freestyle skiing World Cup in China on Saturday.
The 35-year-old Calgary resident reached second in a three-way photo close at the Secret Garden Resort during the Olympic test competition in front up to the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.
“Super stoked to put down a great race, especially on the Olympic test course,” Leman said Alpine Canada. “It’s been cool to see all the infrastructure going into the Games, and it got the vibes going first in what was a big event. I’m stoked that I could step up.” Source – cbc.ca
Sergey Ridzik of the Russian Olympic Committee completed first. Bastien Midol of France received the bronze medal while Johannes Rohrweck of Austria did not complete the four-men race.
Leman, an Olympic winner at Pyeongchang 2018, won a terrifying mountain biking collision in May 2020. He sustained five fractured bones, a fractured collarbone and fell and pierced lung in the event.

It was the 30-year-old’s initial competitive appearance since February 2020, when she sustained knee damage at an appearance in Megeve, France.
