According to the Sochi 2014 website, Mac Marcoux of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario won the gold medal on Saturday in the men's giant slalom competition for alpine skiers who are visually impaired at the 2014 Paralympic Winter Games in Sochi.

Marcoux posted a winning time of 2:29.62, which was a full two seconds faster than his nearest competitor, silver medalist Jakub Krako of Slovakia, who posted a time of 2:31.66. Russian Valerii Redkozubov won the bronze medal with a time of 2:33.57.

Marcoux was the fastest skier in the first run with a time of 1:16.02 and then was the second fastest skier in the second run with a time of 1:13.60, only 0.35 seconds back of Krako.

With the gold medal, Marcoux becomes the most decorative Canadian athlete at the 2014 Paralympic Winter Games. Marcoux now has three medals--one gold medal and two bronze medals. He won a bronze medal in the men's downhill and super giant slalom for the visually impaired earlier in the week.
