Friday morning, the Park City native, and longtime Park City Mountain Resort shredder, won gold in the Giant Slalom, his third win already at this year's world championships - making Ted the first man to win that many golds at a single world championships since Jean-Claude Killy did it 45 years ago.

Ted, who won the Super-G and Super-Combined earlier this week, held a lead of more than 1.3 seconds after the GS's first run - prompting Italian racing legend Alberto Tomba to joke that Ted had time for coffee during the second leg.

Ted will race for a fourth gold Sunday in Slalom (5:30 am MST, watch live HERE). A win there would link him with Killy as the only men ever to win four gold medals in one world championship.
We're so proud of Ted, whose connection to Park City Mountain Resort goes back virtually his entire life, from exploring the slopes as a young kid to coming up through the local developmental programs. Watch his PCMR story here:
