Friends gather in Toronto for Zoricic’s funeral



TORONTO (AP) — Friends, family and teammates have gathered at a Toronto church to pay tribute to Canadian freestyle skier Nik Zoricic.

Zoricic died earlier this month after crashing in a World Cup skicross event in Grindelwald, Switzerland. He was 29.

The entire Canadian skicross team — including Olympic gold medalist Ashleigh McIvor and world champion Chris Del Bosco — are among those attending Monday’s funeral at Islington United Church.
