Shihomi Shinya shook off a cold to place third in the women’s 500 meters but failed in her bid to win two straight golds on the final day of the season-opening Calgary World Cup on Sunday.

Shinya, who won the 500 Saturday to claim her second World Cup career victory, sped around Calgary’s Olympic Oval in 38.08 seconds to place behind China’s Wang Manli and Anzhelika Kotyuga of Belarus, who clocked 38.00 and 38.07, respectively.
