the road to gold | skier manny osborne-paradis


Spend five minutes with adrenaline junkie Manuel Osborne-Paradis and it’s hard to imagine the Canadian alpine skier in any other job. This is a guy who will hurtle himself down mountains at speeds that exceed 100 kilometres per hour, who coaches and mentors youth athletes, who swings a mean golf club and who really, really loves vanilla ice cream. Even during a brief conversation with him—where it felt as though I was catching up with an old friend that had loads of great stories to tell—the passion he exudes for movement is as palpable as his laser focus on competing in Sochi, Russia in February. Meet Manuel Osborne-Paradis, fondly known to friends and fans as "Manny."
