TORONTO - 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 medallist Ashleigh McIvor and world champion Chris Del Bosco --are among those attending today's funeral at Islington United Church.

Ottawa Senators star Jason Spezza -- who was a friend of Zoricic's -- is one of the pallbearers.
