WHISTLER, B.C. - The U.S. Ski Team's Monica Bascio (sit-ski; Evergreen, Colo.) went all out to take third in an IPC Cross Country World Cup in Whistler. 

"Monica put on her game face and had a good race," Adaptive Cross Country Head Coach Greg Rawlings said.

Bascio, who finished on the podium in the women's 5k, led the way for the U.S. Team competing at the site of the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games, which included Chris Klebl (sit-ski; Heber City, Utah) who finished eighth.

Three other U.S. men finished within the top 20, including Greg Mallory (sit-ski; Portland, Ore.) in 17th, Sean Halsted (sit-ski; Ephrata, Wash.) in 18th and Andrew Soule (sit-ski; Pearland, Texas) in 19th.

The IPC Cross Country World Cup in Whistler wraps up Saturday with men's and women's sprint races.
