Two of our athlete ambassadors are present at the 2022 Beijing Paralympic Games, from March 4 to 13, 2022, and already have made some victories. Alexis Guimond won the bronze medal in Super G Standing, and Tristan Rodgers (guide for the skier Mac Marcoux), a silver medal in Visually Impaired Downhill.

If you didn’t get the chance to know them yet, here is a quick review of their career.

Alexis Guimond

Alexis Guimond started skiing at the age of 4 years old, wanting to imitate his older brother who was very involved in local ski competitions.

As of the 2016-2017 season, Alexis got a second place in Giant Slalom in Para-alpine skiing at the World Championships in Italy. A few months later, he won the Giant Slalom in Kramsjka Gora in Slovenia. In March 2017, Guimond won the gold medal in Giant Slalom, as well as the silver medal in Super G and Downhill at the World Cup in Pyeongchang.

Alexis Guimond continues his feat by qualifying at the Paralympic Games in 2018. He received the bronze medal in Giant Slalom and fourth place in Downhill and Super G. He was the first Canadian male standing skier on the Paralympic podium in 20 years.

2021-2022 Season

During the 2021-2022 season, Alexis won 2 silver medals and one bronze medal in both stages of the World Cup circuit, which allowed him to qualify for the Beijing Paralympic Games.

On Sunday March 6, our athlete ambassador got a first bronze medal in Super G Standing.

We can’t wait to see his performances in these other competitions:

  • Giant Slalom Standing: Final, Wednesday March 9, 9:00 p.m.
  • Slalom Standing: Final, Friday March 11, 9:00 p.m.

Tristan Rodgers

Tristan Rodgers participated in many copetitions with the Mont Trembalnt ski club before studying in Engineering at the University of Ottawa. After his second year of studies, he took a break to guide Para-alpine skier Mac Marcoux, a five-time paralympic medalist. Since 2018, Tristan’s ski career has paralleled that of Mac Marcoux.

During the 2019-2020 season, the duo has made an impression! Together, they won the 50th World Cup of Marcoux’s career. Then won the 8 races in which they participated in the World Cup circuit.

2021-2022 Season

The duo qualifies for the 2022 Beijing Paralympic Games and wins the silver medal in Visually Impaired Downhill.

Unfortunately, the Games ended there for the two atheletes. Mac was forced to withdraw from the Games following a lower body injury he suffered during the Super G event.
