Improves on fourth place from 2018


BEIJING – Alexis Guimond just missed the medals two months ago at the world championships but on Sunday he hung a bronze medal around his neck following the men’s standing Super-G at the 2022 Paralympic Winter Games.

The 22-year-old from Gatineau, Que., was the 11th skier down the hill but he produced a strong technical race keeping to the middle for most of the two-kilometre run. He then watched 28 skiers fail to match his time.

Liang Jingyi of China won the gold medal clocking one minute and 9.11 seconds. Markus Salcher of Austria, the 2014 champion, was second in 1:09.35 and Guimond, fourth in the event four years ago, was third in 1:10.02.

It’s Guimond’s second career Games medal. He won a bronze in the giant slalom in PyeongChang which ended a 20-year Paralympic medal drought for the men in standing alpine skiing.
