Boissevain’s Lee Chandler helped lead Canada’s Nexxice team to a third straight silver medal at the world synchronized skating championships on the weekend in Courmayeur, Italy.

"It feels great to get silver," Chandler, who serves as co-captain of Nexxice, told Skate Canada. "It’s always a great accomplishment to win a medal at the international level."

Nexxice, based out of Burlington, Ont., moved up from third after the short program to second following Saturday’s free skate with a score of 220.88 points to finish just behind gold-medal winning Marigold Ice United from Finland, which placed first with a score of 223.45 points.

"We increased the intensity of our performance from the short program," Chandler told Skate Canada. "The crowd really enjoyed our take on the gang’s routine in the story."

Chandler is a former provincial singles champion and former member of Skate Brandon who moved east to become the first male to compete for a senior synchronized skating team in the country.
