Jeff Pain and Michelle Kelly on Saturday had the day’s best marks in both runnings of the men’s and women’s races, respectively, to move a step closer to a Canadian gold double in the skeleton World Championships.

Local favorite Kazuhiro Koshi, 38, 10th after his first running at the Nagano Spiral, was eighth for Japan’s highest placing in the men’s field and Eiko Nakayama was 11th in the women’s ahead of Sunday’s second and final round. Pain clocked 1 minute, 49.84 seconds and Kelly came home in 1:52.90.
