It was a golden weekend for Muskoka’s own Liam Brearley, as he claimed gold on the FIS Snowboard World Cup tour in Laax, Switzerland
Brearley, a native of Gravenhurst, Ontario, scored 89.93 points on his run to capture his first career World Cup win as the 20-year-old built on his previous podium haul of two second-place finishes and a third-place finish.
His first World Cup victory also comes nearly four years, exactly since he won three medals at the Lausanne 2020 Youth Olympic Games, where he hit the podium in each halfpipe, slopestyle and big air.
“What a crazy week out here in Laax! So happy to come away with my first WC win!! Thank you to everyone for the messages and support,” said Brearly via social media.
