Canadian speed skaters Steven Dubois and Pascal Dion captured gold on home ice on Sunday at the season-opening short track World Cup stop in Montreal.
Dubois won the men’s 500-metre event for his second medal of the weekend, and Dion followed it up by topping the podium in the men’s 1,000m in an exciting finish.
Dubois, a 25-year-old from Terrebonne, Que., crossed the line in 40.345 seconds in front of the roaring crowd at the Aréna Maurice-Richard. South Korea’s Lee June-Seo won the silver medal in 40.434, while Italy’s Pietro Sighel claimed bronze (40.719).
Fellow Canadians Jordan Pierre-Gilles (40.920) and Mathieu Pelletier (41.785) finished fourth and fifth, respectively.
