ARE, Sweden -- Canada's Marielle Thompson took the silver on Sunday in women's World Cup ski cross.

The skier from Whistler, B.C., finished second behind World Cup leader and world champion Fanny Smith of Switzerland, who won all three of her starts in style after failing to qualify for the finals the previous day.

Smith has 576 points at the top of the standings, followed by France's Ophelle David at 487.

In the men's race, world champion Jean Frederic Chapuis of France held off Germany's Armin Niederer, helping Alex Fiva of Switzerland clinch the World Cup title.

Fiva won the small final to keep an insurmountable 105-point lead over Niederer in the standings with one race left.
