Brandon’s Cassie Hawrysh just missed finishing in the top 10 at Friday’s World Cup women’s skeleton race in Park City, Utah.

Hawrysh, a 29-year-old Neelin high school graduate, raced to a two-run time of one minute, 41.13 seconds, to finish 1.59 seconds behind gold medallist Noelle Pikus-Pace of the United States. Canada’s Sarah Reid placed third in a time of 1:40.60 and has secured one of Canada’s three spots in the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. Canada’s Robynne Thompson placed 10th with a time of 1:41.08.

"I had good training leading into the race and things went good so I’m happy with it," Reid said.

Hawrysh and Thompson, who tied for the Canadian title at the national team trials last month, and former Olympic medallist Mellisa Hollingsworth, who started the season on the second-tier Intercontinental Cup tour, are battling for Canada’s other two spots in Sochi.

In the men’s event, Calgary’s John Fairbairn matched his career-best result, finishing eighth in 1:38.29. Russia’s Alexander Tretiakov won his first race of the season in 1:37.59.

There are two more women’s World Cup races slated for next week in Lake Placid, N.Y., before Canada’s Olympic skeleton team is expected to be named on Dec. 17.
