Penticton’s Andi Naude picked up her second career podium finish for Canada’s national mogul team, this time on home soil.
Naude helped Canada earn a second consecutive podium in the FIS World Cup in Calgary on Jan.30. She finished third behind Chloé and Justine Dufour-Lapointe. Naude scored 74.11.
“I’m at a loss for words right now to be able to do this in Canada with my teammates next to me,” said Naude, 20, in a team statement. “It’s an honour to just ski for this team. We’re surrounded by so much talent each day. I’m proud to be up on the podium today with two greats and I’m thankful for my teammates and coaches that push me to be better.”
The team flies out to Deer Valley, Utah, for a FIS World Cup double header next week. The team is scheduled to compete in a moguls event Feb. 5-6.
