#Ski Jean-Fred is the Olympic Champion!

Jean-Fred is the Olympic Champion!

Published the 20 February 2014

Thursday the 20th of February, 11.47am in a bar in Val Thorens.

At least 150 people, parents, fan club members, friends, holidaymakers, all with their eyes fixed on the big screen, are awaiting local boy Jean-Fred Chapuis' final. The excitement is palpable...

As the starting gate drops, the spectators' heart-rates rocket.

1 minute and 16 seconds later, the room erupts in joy! Jean-Fred is the Olympic Champion ahead of his two friends Arnaud Bovolenta and Jonathan Midol.

Magnificent, exceptional, there's no end of superlatives to describe the achievements of these three French athletes!

After having been crowned World Champion in Norway just a year earlier, Val Thorens' golden boy takes home the ultimate title! He's a most worthy successor to sisters Christine and Marielle GOITSCHEL.

Bravo and thank you Mr Jean-Fred Chapuis!
