Hawrysh has tougher task to make it to sochi

The road to the Winter Olympics got a lot more difficult for Brandon’s Cassie Hawrysh on Monday.

Despite being ranked ninth in the world, the 29-year-old Neelin graduate was sent down from the World Cup tour to the Intercontinental Cup to make room for former Olympic medallist Mellisa Hollingsworth, who got off to a slow start to the season. Hawrysh, who had two fourth-place finishes on the World Cup tour last year, was 10th and 11th in her two races this season, while Canadian rookie Robynne Thompson was eighth and 10th.

Bobsleigh Skeleton Canada spokesperson Chris Dornan said it may come down to a coach’s decision between Thompson and Hawrysh for the final Olympic spot, but a first-place finish in Germany this week on the ICC tour would help Hawrysh’s cause.
