First medal for Michael Janyk (Can) in Slalom!!!

Riders in this news : 

After a 9th place this morning in the slalom’s first run, Michael Janyk achieved today a great performance taking the Bronze in the last race of these 2009 Worlds in Val d’Isère! He becomes thus the first canadian skier to win a medal in this discipline at a World Championships event.
One year before the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, this result is a real satisfaction for Michael who had back injury last season.
“I felt confident before the race because I like tough slopes as this one. I was pretty fast in training earlier this week and I didn’t hold anything back today,” “Winning Canada’s first ever slalom medal is huge, and I’m very proud to have achieved such a performance today. I aim now to improve my standings in the slalom rankings and be ready for a great 2010 season. I’m living only a five-minute walk away from the Olympic slope which I know as my pocket. It will be such an exciting event for our family.”

All in all, the Team Rossignol signed 5 medals in these World Championships:

-    2 Gold in the women’s Downhill and Super G with Lindsey Vonn (USA)
-    1 Silver with Marie Marchand-Arvier (Fra) in the women’s Super G

Congratulations to our Great Champions!!!
