BREAKING: Gold & silver medals for Canada in ski cross

Canada's total medal total is at 22

Canadian women have done it again.

Marielle Thompson of Whistler, B.C won a gold medal and Kelsey Serwa of Kelona, B.C., captured a silver medal in women's skicross Friday at the Sochi Winter Games.

Both skiers crossed the finish line ahead of bronze medallist Anna Holmund of Sweden.

Thompson and Serwa were among the medal favourites entering the event, with Thompson winning two World Cup races this season and Serwa collecting a World Cup win on the same course last year.

Georgia Simmerling of West Vancouver, B.C., was eighth in the seeding run and won her opening heat, but crashed in the quarterfinals and left the course in obvious discomfort.

The two medals, which come a day after Canadian women won gold medals in hockey and curling, raise Canada's total to 22, eight gold, 10 silver and four bronze.
