Arendz shot 0-1, despite a miss he was able to take the win by 21 seconds after a blistering fast last lap. Wilkie shot clean for her first time this season to take the win, tying with Ukraine’s Liudmyla Liashenko. Brittany Hudak finished third after shooting clean while, Derek Zapotosky narrowly missed the podium, finishing fourth.
