It’s a mistake that draws laughter from some and pity from others. Just over a week ago, Valérie Grenier (26) was leading after the first run of the giant slalom in Semmering (Austria) when she was disqualified. The reason: she triggered her starting gate too early.

Awkward? Perhaps. But rather clumsy. One thing is for sure: no one is laughing at Grenier anymore. The Ontario woman, who learned to ski in the famous ski resort of Mont-Tremblant, surprises everyone in Kranjska Gora (Sln) and wins. “I’m really proud of myself. A dream comes true,” she says, beaming.
