Jessica Hewitt of Kamloops finished third in two races Thursday at the Canadian short track speed skating team selection camp in Montreal.
Hewitt was third in the 1,000 metres and the 1,500m. She survived a fall in the 1,000m to cross the finish line behind Valerie Maltais and Marianne St-Gelais, both of Quebec, and also finished behind Maltais and St-Gelais in the 1,500m.
Each skater will race each distance three times, with each skater’s top two results counting toward her overall result, and the final races are scheduled for Sunday.
The qualifying skaters will represent Canada at World Cup events in Italy and Russia. Both events are Olympic qualifying meets.
