Erik Guay wins Super-G Gold

Canadian veteran Erik Guay produced a stunning run to take Super-G gold at the World Championships in St. Moritz.

The 35-year-old drew on all his experience to conquer the challenging Swiss course, and become the oldest world champion in Alpine skiing in the process.

Guay edged out Olympic champion – the Norweigian Kjetil Jansrud – into second place, with Manuel Osborne-Paradis finishing with bronze on a fantastic day for Canada.

The standings prove Super-G skiing is not just for the youngsters, as all three men on the podium were in their 30s.

Guay’s unlikely victory makes him just the fourth man to win both world Super-G and downhill titles following a downhill win in 2011.
