According to the Canadian Press, Erik Guay of Quebec City, Quebec won a bronze medal on Sunday in a men's alpine skiing downhill race in Bormio, Italy.

With the podium finish, Guay passes Steve Podborski for the most medals won by a Canadian on the World Cup alpine skiing circuit. Guay now has 21 medals--four gold, eight silver and nine bronze. It was also the second time this year that Guay recorded a podium finish. He won a gold medal in Val Gardena, Italy on December 21.

Ironically Podborski will be Canada's Chef de Mission at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi. Guay will try to duplicate Podborski's Olympic magic in February as Podborski won a bronze medal in the men's downhill at the 1980 Olympic Winter Games in Lake Placid.

The winner on Sunday was Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway with a time of 1:54.08. Hannes Reichelt of Austria was second with a time of 1:54.47, followed by Guay at 1:54.59.

Guay also moves into second place in the FIS World Cup standings for the men's downhill.
