B.C.'s Manuel Osborne-Paradis one to watch at Olympics

Manuel Osborne Paradis from North Vancouver, B.C., is heading to the Winter Olympic Games for the third time in his career, and is aiming to win Canada's first medal in alpine skiing in two decades.

The last Canadian Olympian to medal in the sport was Ed Podovinsky, who won bronze at the 1994 Games in Lillehammer, Norway.
