16-year-old adds Slalom gold to Giant Slalom silver and Combined Gold
Zak Carrick-Smith continued to rewrite the history books in Gangwon with a record-breaking third medal as he took Gold in the Men’s Slalom event.
Having won Britain’s first ever Alpine medal at an Olympic event with Gold in the Alpine Combined, Carrick-Smith went on to add Silver in Giant Slalom before his victory in this morning’s Slalom contest.
In third position at the end of the first run, Carrick-Smith delivered a blistering second run to take victory by a margin of 0.05s from Sweden’s Elliot Westlund, with France’s Nash Huot-Marchand in bronze.

Axel Rose Green and Jake Dade secured the best ever British result in Mixed Ski Cross with sixth place, and Teiva Hamaini finished 14th in Freestyle Snowboard Slopestyle.
