Whistler, B.C.'s Marielle Thompson won her second straight ski cross World Cup in Val Thorens, France on Saturday, while Brady Leman was third in the men's event for his first podium of the season.​

Thompson also won gold on Friday and teammate Georgia Simmerling took silver after a photo finish in another ski cross race at the same event.

Thompson edged her teammate in that race by about the length of her fingers by extending her arm at the finish line.
