The snow was being warmed up or something and the later skiers had problems and didn't finish!

This must be Great Britians best ever Olympics!

Yeah, I just saw that!!!

Alain Baxter has got Britian's 1st ever olympic medal in skiing.

All the other guys fell over on a really sharp corner, but he was one of about 5 or 6 who actually completed the course.

Well, never mind how he did it...

GBR got another medal!!!

Post Here's the story.

Alain Baxter has won Great Britain's first ever Olympic medal in alpine skiing.

The Scot came home third in the men's slalom at Salt Lake City.

Baxter finished eighth in the first run, climbing to third in the second to finish 1.26 seconds behind French winner Jean-Pierre Vidal.

That slalom was unbelievable

Jubilant Baxter on his bronze medal

Sebastien Amiez was second.

Baxter's shock success was Britain's third medal of the Games, following the women curling team's gold and skeleton slider Alex Commber's bronze.

He told BBC Sport Online: "If I had put two really good runs together, I would have won gold.

"All the hard work over the season has paid off.

"It's unbelievable to think I've won the first alpine medal for Britain at an Olympics, and I am sure there will be more to come."

Great News!

Congrats!

By the way, France also improved its record: the previous one was 9 medals and this time, we get 11
Jean-Pierre Vidal is the first French gold medalist in slalom since 1968 and the (here) famous Jean-Claude Killy.
