Alexis Guimond joined the Canadian Para Alpine Ski Team for the 2016-17 season, competing in the standing category. In January 2017, Guimond won bronze in giant slalom at the 2017 Para-Alpine Skiing World Championships in Italy, his career-first World Championship medal. Just a month earlier, he earned a career-first World Cup win, placing first in the giant slalom at Kransjka Gora, SLO. It was the first World Cup win for Canada in the men’s standing giant slalom event in 10 years. At the 2018 Paralympic Games, Guimond ended a 20-year medal drought in the men’s standing category picking up bronze in the giant slalom. That record brought him the “Best Paralympic Debut by a Male Athlete” award at the 2018 Canadian Paralympic Sport Awards. At only 18-years-old, Guimond has a promising future on the para-alpine circuit and undoubtedly will win more medals for Canada in the years to come.
