LOS ANGELES, March 5, 2017 – Canada continues to add medals at the Para-cycling Track World Championships in Los Angeles, with two more silver medals on Saturday, bringing the Team Canada total to seven. Marie-Claude Molnar of St-Hubert, Quebec, won both medals, bringing her tally to three silver medals in three events.
Molnar started her day off with the C4 3000 metre Individual Pursuit, qualifying for the gold medal final and setting a personal best in the first 1000 metres before being caught by multi-time world champion Shawn Morelli of the United States. Molnar also took second in the C4 Scratch Race.
“Day 3 was a long day for Marie-Claude,” said head coach Sebastien Travers. “She raced two pursuits and a scratch race, earning silver in both events. The qualifying was a first good test, as Marie rode better than expected and set a very good baseline for the coming season. In the final, she went for it and did a personal best on her opening Kilo. The work done by her personal coach Eric Van Den Eynde, as well as her Strength and Conditioning coach Corey Kennedy is noticeable and it shows in her time.”
