Thursday February 20, 11:47 a.m. in a bar in Val Thorens.

There are at least 150 people, parents, fan club members, friends, vacationers, their eyes glued to the big screen to wait for the final of the country's child, Jean-Fred Chapuis.

When the starting gate lowers, the spectators' heartbeats race.

1 minute and 16 seconds later there is liberation, the explosion of joy! Jean-Fred is Olympic champion in front of his two friends Arnaud Bovolenta and Jonathan Midol.

Magnificent, exceptional, there is no shortage of superlatives to describe the feat of the three French people!

Just one year after being crowned World Champion in Norway, the kid from Val Thorens wins the supreme title!

Bravo and thank you Mr Jean-Fred Chapuis!

And to celebrate his return, we'll see you at Place Caron on Wednesday February 26 at 17:30 p.m.
On the program, a guard of honor with ESF instructors, the ski club, resort residents and vacationers who wish, followed by mulled wine, hot chocolate and snacks. Not forgetting the possibility of taking photos with our champion! The rebroadcast of Jean Fred's race will also be available on the giant screen.
