Calgary's John Fairbairn 6th
Martins Dukurs rallied in the second heat at St. Moritz, Switzerland to pass his brother Tomass Dukurs and win a World Cup skeleton race on Friday, the second straight 1-2 finish for the Latvian siblings.
The winner finished two runs down the historic St. Moritz track in two minutes, 19.18 seconds for his third win in five races this season. Tomass Dukurs's final time in second was 2:19.44.
Matt Antoine of the United States finished in 2:19.87 to take third, his third medal of the season and solidifying his position as a podium favourite for next month's Sochi Olympics. Antoine matched his bronze showing from the St. Moritz World Cup in 2012.
Calgary natives John Fairbairn and Eric Neilson were sixth and ninth, respectively.
