After securing the top FIS NorAm spot at Eastern Canadians, Salmon Arm’s Alysson Marshall joined the Canadian OPA team competing at the last of the Scandinavian Cup races in Estonia Feb. 11 and 12. In the Classic Sprints she ended up seventh after the heats. In the Classic 10-km event she was 15th.

Marshall then joined the Canadian World Cup Team in Poland for World Cups Feb. 17 and 18. Her first event was the 1.5 km sprint in which she was second of the four Canadian women and only one second from Top 30 and the heats. She was 35th.

In the Classic 10-km event the next day, the entire Canadian team struggled with difficult waxing conditions. With no grip, Marshall had to herringbone the hills, coming 55th. The team is now preparing in Italy for World Cup races in Finland.
