Just wow, learnt to ski on a plastic slope at Pendle near Burnley and yesterday in a world cup slalom in Italy he was 27th after the first run. He had the fastest run in the second run and moved up to 4th spot and only a fraction of a second off a podium place. Absolutely incredible and it goes to show that as a country we can occasionally punch well above our weight and produce a stunning result.

There's even an article on the BBC website about the achievement.

Great to see him come second in a parallel world cup slalom in Oslo yesterday. Surely it's only a question of time before he wins a world cup race.

Wow so close & yet so far in the first World Cup Slalom at Levi yesterday. Despite starting the first run as the 14th starter, he managed the 2nd fastest run & he was only 0.35 seconds behind the fastest skier of the first run. Skiing 2nd last in the second run, he was 0.75 seconds faster, but came out of the course. Great effort & I'm certain he will deliver the first win for a British skier in a World Cup race this year. :clap: :thumbup: :clap:
