INZELL, Germany - Calgary's Gilmore Junio earned a silver medal in the men's 500-metre race at a World Cup long track speedskating event.

Junio posted a time of 35.02 seconds, finishing behind Ronald Mulder of the Netherlands, who won in 34.96.

German Nico Ihle was third in 35.10.

Junio earned his third career World Cup medal, all coming over 500 metres.

The Canadian won gold in Salt Lake City in November 2013 and silver in Nagano, Japan in December 2012.

Junio made headlines at last month's Winter Games in Sochi when he gave up his spot in the men's 1,000-metre race to teammate Denny Morrison of Fort St. John, B.C., who went on to win the silver medal.
