Canada's Alexandria Loutitt earned World Cup silver in women's ski jumping action on Sunday.

The Calgary native totalled 267.5 points to finish just behind France's Josephine Pagnier, who had 272.4 points in the large hill competition.

Norway's Eirin Maria Kvandal took bronze with 252.8 points.

"I am happy with my performance this weekend," Loutitt said. "I am really looking forward to the next competitions."

Fellow Calgary native Abigail Strate finished 13th with 221.9 points.

It was the second medal of the season-opening World Cup weekend for the 19-year-old Loutitt, who also grabbed bronze on Saturday in the normal hill event.
