According to the Sochi 2014 website on Sunday, Jan Hudec of Banff, Alberta has won an Olympic bronze medal in the men's super giant slalom.

Hudec posted a time of 1:18.67 to become the first Canadian to win an Olympic medal in alpine skiing since Edi Podivinsky of Edmonton won a bronze medal in the men's downhill at the 1994 Olympic Winter Games in Lillehammer.

Hudec's time was shared by American great Bode Miller, who won his sixth career Olympic medal.

Kjetil Jansrud of Norway won the gold medal with a time of 1:18.14 while American Andrew Weinbrecht won the silver medal with a time of 1:18.44. The silver medal for Weinbrecht was a major surprise because he has had only one top ten performance since winning the bronze medal in the men's super giant slalom at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver.

Canada now has 13 medals at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games--four gold medals, five silver medals and four bronze medals.
