NAKISKA, Alta. Zach Banner Colts Jersey . - Olympic champion Marielle Thompson posted the top qualifying time Friday for the season-opening skicross World Cup at Nakiska Ski Area.Thompson, from Whistler, B.C., had a time of one minute 10.50 seconds. She was followed by teammate Georgia Simmerling of North Vancouver, B.C., in 1:11.07.I still feel like I could have been better in a few spots, but it was overall really good, said Thompson. I felt like I fixed my mistakes in my training runs, so that was good. Theres a smaller field here than most World Cups, but the Europeans all bring their strongest racers so itll be a good field.The top 16 women advanced to Saturdays elimination heats, which will feature four skiers racing each other down a course of turns, jumps and bumps.Im definitely looking forward to racing now that qualifyings over, said Thompson, who won her second career Crystal Globe as overall World Cup champion last season.Like Thompson, Simmerling is looking forward to testing her skills against top-flight international competition.Were both super-pumped to get in the gates with other girls, where it counts, said Simmerling. I think (a medal) can definitely happen and Im going to keep skiing smart and clean and fast. Hopefully thats whats going to happen.Switzerlands Fanny Smith finished third in qualifying while Swedens Anna Holmlund and Sandra Naeslund rounded out the top five. Smith won the inaugural World Cup race at Nakiska two years ago before finishing second behind Thompson last year.In the mens qualifiers, Calgarys Brady Leman finished fourth in 1:08.16.I just had a mistake at the bottom of the course, Leman said. Its so tight, you cant have any mistakes, but the rest of the run was OK so I guess well see.After training hard in the off-season, Leman is hoping to improve upon his third-place showing in Nakiska last year.Its a lot of work to get back here every year, he said. The first one is always so intense. Its going to be important to get out quick, for sure.Austrias Johannes Rohrweck had the fastest qualification run of the day in 1:07.91. Teammate Anton Grimus and French skier Jean Frederic Chapuis rounded out the top three.Montreals Chris Del Bosco finished ninth in a time of 1:08.46 to also advance to Saturdays races.I was looking forward to a good start here - have a decent qualifier and then its a whole different ball game, Del Bosco said. Im fired up for the season. I worked really hard this summer. Now its time for the fun. We put in all that work, so we can have fun all year. Hopefully that will translate into some good results.Four other Canadian men also made the 32-skier cut.David Duncan of London, Ont., was 17th in 1:08.80, Ian Deans of Kelowna, B.C., was 19th in 1:08.83, Tristan Tafel of Canmore, Alta., was 22nd in 1:09.05, while Louis-Pierre Helie of Berthierville, Que., was 28th in 1:09.22. Quincy Wilson Youth Jersey . -- Jay Haas and Peter Jacobsen took the second-round lead Saturday in the Champions Tours Legends of Golf, teaming for a 6-under 48 in windy conditions on the par-3 Top of the Rock course. Malik Hooker Womens Jersey . And former Maple Leafs coach Ron Wilson certainly knows his pain. "Its pretty hard to coach there without allowing some of these things to kind of affect you," Wilson told TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun in his ESPN.Paul McGinley looks back on an action-packed week at the WGC-Dell Match Play, where Jason Day saw off Rory McIlroy on his way to a second successive PGA Tour title and a return to world No 1. Often what separates the top players on a week-to-week basis is that one small element of confidence and Jasons certainly got that. He had a big boost with the win last week at Bay Hill and he carried it into proceedings in Austin.He has the ability to play on the front foot and be aggressive, particularly with how long and generally straight he hits with the driver, and he just gave his opponents no chance. Victory moves Day back to world No 1 Having watched both matches though, what impressed me was how outstanding his short game was. He had just 23 putts in the semi-final and his putting in the afternoon was equally impressive too.Day kept hitting fairways, putting the pressure on his opponents and controlling matches. He didnt have any easy matches, as youd expect when youre playing the leading 64 players in the world, but he had enough in the tank to keep winning. Three weeks ago, Adam Scott was the name on everyones lips. Now were talking about Jason Day being the hottest player in the world. Paul McGinley I think youve got to credit Day for his mental strength against Rory McIlroy. That was a real battle between two heavyweights and it came right down to the very last hole.Rory, from tee to green played very well, but he missed some chances with the putter which he could have done with making to put daylight between him and his Australian counterpart.Once Jason got the bit between his teeth, he was going to be very hard to beat. You just started to feel thee tide was turning Jasons way as the match neared its conclusion. Marlon Mack Womens Jersey. Days WGC title How Jason Day claimed Match Play victory Then in the final, Louis Oosthuizen lost the initiative when he missed a short birdie putt to go two up. Jason then took control and when Louis looks back at the game, hell see the first two holes were his chance.Major thinkingIts funny how quickly the narrative can change in professional golf. Three weeks ago, Adam Scott was the name on everyones lips.  Now were talking about Jason Day being the hottest player in the world. Adam Scott and Jason Day have both been back-to-back winners on the PGA Tour this year Days burst into form, you know Jordan Spieth is going to get his act together to be strong at Augusta and of course Rorys going to be buoyed after the way he played this week.McIlroy hasnt had a win this year, but his game seems to be heading in the right direction. You could add at least four or five other names though who are all legitimate contenders.Jason though is incredibly ambitious and keeps talking about winning several major champions. Hes going to go forward and Ill be very surprised if at the end of his career he doesnt have many more major titles.Hes up for the fight, hes looking forward and obviously very confident. Day is certainly going to be a factor at Augusta.Watch all four days of the Masters from April 7-10 live on Sky Sports - your home of golf Also See: Day storms to Match Play title McIlroy finishes in fourth spot WGC day five: as it happened Golf live on Sky Sports 4 Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
