North Vancouver’s Cameron Alexander continues to carve a path onto the podium in World Cup ski racing.

The 26-year-old finished third in a World Cup downhill race held Feb. 17 in Norway, earning his second bronze of the season and third World Cup medal of his career.

Alexander was sixth out of the gate on the Kvitfjell course and briefly held top spot with his time of one minute 44.81. The next two skiers, however, both beat his time, with Switzerland’s Niels Hintermann taking gold in 1:44.62 and Austria’s Vincent Kriechmayr claiming silver with a run of 1:44.70.

Alexander has scored well in Norway, earning his first World Cup gold in 2022 after finishing in a tie with Hintermann. Alexander also earned bronze in Italy in December of 2023.

“It feels good to be back on the podium here,” he said after the race. “This place has been very good to me and our team as a whole, so I hope we keep coming back every year from now on…. The track was amazing today. They did great prep from the two days before when it snowed a bunch, so it was a very good race all around.”

The podium showing moved Alexander up to ninth in the World Cup downhill rankings.
