It was another day of disappointment for Canadian luge team at the Sochi Games on Thursday.

Alex Gough, Sam Edney and the doubles tandem of Justin Snith and Tristan Walker combined in the new event but missed winning a medal by one-tenth of a second.

Germany took gold in two minutes, 45.649, Russia was second in 2:46.649 and Latvia won bronze in 2:47.295.

The Canadians, all from Calgary except for Walker, who is from nearby Cochrane, Alta., had a combined time of 2:47.395.

Gough finished fourth in her women's singles event, while the doubles tandem also finished fourth.
