(Oberstdorf) Canadian Abigail Strate won the silver medal in ski jumping at the World Cup in Oberstdorf, Germany, on Monday.

The 22-year-old skier from Calgary finished behind Austrian Eva Pinkelnig.

Norway’s Eirin Maria Kvandal and Austria’s Jacqueline Seifriedsberger tied for third in the women’s large hill event.

It was Strate’s second World Cup medal in three days, and her career-best result, after winning bronze on Saturday in Garmisch, Germany.

“I thought one podium can sometimes be considered a fluke, but two podiums are definitely not a fluke,” Strate said.

“It’s very exciting to realize what’s possible. At the start of the year, I didn’t think so. I know there are still things to correct. I never thought I would be in this position. »

Strate’s teammate and reigning women’s world champion, Alexandria Loutitt of Calgary, finished sixth on Monday.

Loutitt ranks fourth and Strate seventh overall in the Women’s World Cup.

The two women, along with MacKenzie Boyd-Clowes and Matthew Soukup, won Canada’s first Olympic medal in ski jumping in 2022, with a bronze in the first mixed team event.

Aged 19, Loutitt began this World Cup season with two silver medals and a bronze.

The Canadians will travel to Austria for their next World Cup stop on Wednesday and Thursday.
