Guay breaks Canadian record
It was another weekend in the record books for Canadian alpine skier Erik Guay.
On his last outing Guay took World Cup gold in the downhill at Val Gardena. Staying in Italy eight days later, Guay became the most decorated Canadian alpine World Cup skier of all time by winning bronze at Bormio.
It was the 21st trip to the World Cup podium for Guay, breaking the national record he tied last weekend, which was until then solely held by Steve Podborski.
Guay’s form will be welcomed by Podborski, an Olympic medallist, who is also the Chef de Mission for the Canadian Olympic Team at Sochi, and a tireless contributor to Canadian sport, particularly alpine ski events.
No Canadian alpine skier has won an Olympic medal since Ed Podivinsky in 1994.
