Canada Qualifies Two More Athletes to the Olympic Winter Games - BC Alpine Ski Association

The world's best alpine speed skiers took to the Men's Olympic Downhill track today under cloudy skies and light snow to compete in the men's super G at the Lake Louise Winterstart World Cup. For the second day in a row, a Norwegian racer grabbed a spot on the podium. Aksel Lund Svindal, the 23 year old racer from Oslo, took the coveted gold with a time of one minute, 26.04 seconds. Coming back from yesterday's disappointing downhill run where he finished 17th, Canada's Erik Guay, (Mont-Tremblant, QC) turned it up today to finish 11th with the time of 1:26.94. “Today's course was challenging and very technical,” told Guay who has met the Olympic selection criteria for Turin in super G.
