—Canadian Devon Kershaw wins silver, Chandra Crawford skis to bronze medals—

Munich, GER—A Christmas scrooge may have tried to spoil the holidays for Canada’s elite cross-country skiers, but Santa certainly had the last laugh before the New Year rings in — delivering a present in the form of silver and bronze medals for Devon Kershaw and Chandra Crawford in the sprint competition at the FIS Tour de Ski in Munich, Germany on Saturday.
The 24-year-old Kershaw of Sudbury, Ont., and 23-year-old Crawford, of Canmore, Alta. both proved Canadian cross-country skiers continue to be a force to reckon with after taking on the world in the opening day of the inaugural Tour de Ski, a new concept which is designed to replicate the Tour de France with the world’s best athletes hitting the start line for six races in eight days, and nearly $1 million (U.S.) up for grabs in prize money.
