Alexis Pinturault is a World Cup alpine ski racer from France with four World Cup victories through December 2013. Pinturault represented France at the World Championships in 2011 and 2013, and was a two-time world junior champion in giant slalom in 2009 and 2011.

Sochi 2014

Alpine skiing is a sport in which the French typically make a strong showing, despite being kept off the podium in all ten events at 2010 Vancouver. France has 43 total medals in alpine competition -- including 15 golds -- and appears to hold a decent shot at accruing more in Sochi due to the development of this young skier making his Olympic debut in 2014.

After finishing third overall in giant slalom, and first in combined during World Cup competition for 2013, the Frenchman has embarked on an even loftier start to 2014. At last week's initial meet in Wengen, Switzerland, Pinturault finished a close second in combined and earned victory in slalom. In the latter event, a near-flawless second run helped him exceed Olympic favorites Felix Neureuther and Marcel Hirschner.
