It's been a long wait. Not just for him but for British skiing in general.

We've come close a couple of times. Do you remember the times of Martin and Graham Bell, or even Conrad Bartelski - who I think came 2nd in a downhill in his last race.

Baxter took a cold remedy that was Legal in the UK, but had different ingredients in the US and was illegal.

Careless, but unlucky.
