A former alpine ski racer, Robin Fémy became Chris Williamson’s guide for the 2010-11 season. The duo has earned multiple IPC World Cup podiums and eight world championship medals together, including four at the most recent world championships in La Molina, Spain. Fémy also guided Williamson to his 100th career IPC World Cup podium in 2011.

On Wednesday, Alpine Canada announced that Femy would also guide Mac Marcoux, Canada's 16-year-old superstar in super-G and giant slalom.

Fémy, who was born in France and now lives in Mont-Tremblant, Que., has close ties to para-alpine racing: his father coaches the French para-alpine ski team. The 2014 Sochi Paralympic Winter Games will be Fémy’s first Paralympic experience.

Off the hill, Fémy owns and operates an underwear company and works as a DJ.
