Len Valjas is officially on a hot streak.
The 23-year-old Torontonian, who trains at WinSport Canada’s Bill Warren Training Centre in Canmore, won a bronze medal Wednesday in a classic-ski race at the World Cup cross-country skiing finals in Stockholm, Sweden.
He won his first career World Cup medal – a silver in Norway — just one week ago.
“I’m still a little shocked because I didn’t expect this finish, but I am really happy,” said Valjas.
The Canadian team has won 10 medals on the World Cup cross-country circuit, matching the team’s pre-season goals.
Alex Harvey was 14th and Devon Kershaw finished 19th.
In the women’s race, Chandra Crawford was 12th; Daria Gaiazova was 23rd and Alysson Marshall was 28th.
Meanwhile, in Schladming, Austria, Jan Hudec (8th), Ben Thomsen (10th) and Erik Guay (13th) all cracked the top-15 in a downhill race at the World Cup finals.
Also on Wednesday, Canadian freestyle skier Kaya Turski took top spot in slopestyle at the European X Games in Tignes, France. Fellow Canadian Dara Howell was third.
