The Czech Republic claimed gold in the Alpine skiing parallel team competition here at the 2017 Winter Universiade in Almaty in Kazakhstan today.
The Czech team, consisting of Martina Dubovska, Daniel Paulus, Tereza Kmochova and Adam Zik, signalled their medal intentions early on as they stormed to a 4-0 defeat of Lebanon in the last 16.
Canada would be their next victims as the Europeans cruised past the North Americans 3-1 to book a place in the last four, before reaching the final courtesy of 3-1 win over Russia.
Dubovska, Kmochova and Zik all won their respective duels to seal the gold medal.
The Austrian team of Rebecca Fiegl, Richard Leitgeb, Denise Widner and Tobias Kogler were forced to settle for silver.
Russia stormed to the bronze medal as they defeated Italy 4-0 to secure third place.
After overcoming Ukraine and Slovakia, the Russians then fell victim to the Czech Republic but they responded well to secure third place.
Aleksander Andrienko, Iulija Pleshkova, Evgenij Pyasik and Anastasiia Silanteva all won their respective races against Italy to secure the bronze medal.
