Prince George, B.C. –  By day,  Nikki Kassel   works  as a nurse at the University Hospital  of Northern B.C,  but now  she has a  silver medal  for her tireless work in another discipline.

Kassel placed second in the Klosters World Cup Masters Cross Country Skiing  event in Switzerland yesterday.

She  finished  her 15 km  race   with a time of 51.14,9,  just   four minutes and eleven seconds behind the gold medalist,  Natalia Ziatikova .
