Josh Dueck proved his world championship victory in Korea in late February was anything but a fluke. The Silver Star para-alpine skier conquered Whistler Mountain Wednesday to win the IPC World Cup finale. Dueck won on the Dave Murray Downhill course in a time of one minute 15.73 seconds, .23 ahead of Chris Devlin-Young of the U.S.

“I needed to prove to myself that Korea wasn’t a fluke,” Dueck told Gary Kingston of the Vancouver Sun shortly after the race. “And to do it in training the last couple of days (he was second and first) was huge step for me. Then to put it down with all the pressure was one my greatest accomplishments skiing.”

Dueck took top spot against 35 starters from 11 countries.
