The women’s Japanese team won gold with a time of 1:27.82, followed by the Russian team, and the Netherlands, who came in third. The overall ranking is tightening at the top, promising good action for the following World Cup event, which will take place in Heerenveen next week.
The Canadian team, formed by Kaylin Irvine, Heather McLean and Marsha Hudey, took the sixth place, with a time of 1:29.71.

The men offered a close race, and the Norwegian team earned the gold medal with a time of 1:21.27. The Netherlands, due to a slight loss of balance, took the second place, followed by the Russian team. Team China missed the podium and came in close fourth.
The Canadian team, composed of Laurent Dubreuil, Gilmore Junio and Antoine Gélinas-Beaulieu, finished ninth, after suffering a fall.
