France (Ju­lia Si­mon/Em­i­lien Jac­quelin) took sil­ver and the United States (Su­san Dun­klee/Low­ell Bai­ley) won bronze.

Beaudry and her fel­low Cana­di­ans on the se­nior team will fol­low the IBU Cup tour to Martell-Val Martell, Italy for sprint and pur­suit events Fri­day and Satur­day.

“Al­though I am very dis­ap­pointed that things did not turn out as we had hoped due to a num­ber of cir­cum­stances,” Jagr, a Kladno na­tive, said in a state­ment. “I am deeply grate­ful to the Flames, the fans and the city of Cal­gary for hav­ing wel­comed me so gen­er­ously. I now look for­ward to con­tin­u­ing the sea­son in Kladno.”
