  • Woolstencroft fifth gold, Forest fifth medal

    "Lauren Woolstencroft of North Vancouver, B.C., won her fifth gold medal (Van Sun) — the most ever by a Canadian at single Winter Paralympics — by taking the women’s standing super-combined skiing event on Saturday at the 2010 Games.
    With the win, Woolstencroft equalled the Canadian record held by wheelchair racer Chantal Petitclerc and swimmer Stephanie Dixon for gold medals won at a single Paralympics, winter or summer.
    Viviane Forest of Edmonton won her fifth medal in five Paralympic events, (Van Sun) taking silver in the women’s visually impaired super-combined on Saturday."

    Congratulations to each.
