Manny Osborne-Paradis made every wrinkle of time matter on Saturday, November 29th, as he tied in second place at the World Cup downhill ski race at Lake Louise.

Manny was just one of seven Canadians in an event with 65 competitors.

Alongside Guillermo Fayed from France, Manny finished the event in one minute, 50 seconds, and 34-thousandths. The first place finisher, Kjetil Jansrud from Norway, completed the track 14-thousandths of a second sooner. Placing fourth was Dom Paris from Italy, who was 41-thousandths of a second behind Manny. The course was 3,133 metres in length and had a vertical drop of 828 metres.

As they aim to keep their scores low, Manny and his French counterpart were given 1.59 FIS race points, while the first place finished earned zero.

Ben Thomsen from Windermere placed 29th at the event, 1.74 seconds behind Jansrud.

Last week at the FIS races at Panorama Mountain Village his only other competitive skiing this season, Manny placed 11th and 7th in the Super G, earning him 33.61 and 20.02 points. His next contests are in Beaver Creek, Colorado on December 5th and 6th.
