Manuel Osborne-Paradis


A richly talented speed skier who is famed for his fun-loving, larger-than-life personality, 'Manny' has three World Cup wins to his name – including his famous victory in Lake Louise, Alta., in 2009. The North Vancouver, B.C., native, who grew up skiing in Whistler, B.C., but lives and trains in Calgary, Alta., enjoyed a superb comeback season in 2012-13, narrowly missing a podium in downhill in Kvitfjell, Norway, and claiming the Canadian downhill title. Away from the ski hill Osborne-Paradis is known for his community work, which includes running an annual ski camp for kids with teammate Mike Janyk in Whistler. He's also an avid golfer.
