Originally from Puerto Vallarta, but based in Canada, Rodolfo Dickson reached the best position for a Mexican in men’s Alpine Skiing in the giant slalom category, as he finished +25:24 behind the gold medal winner.

These are the second Winter Olympics in which Dickson participates, who was the second-best positioned Latino in this discipline.

Due to the weather conditions, half of the competitors were unable to finish the ski race. In his first descent, the Vallarta skier recorded a time of 1:17.32 and in the second one he improved his time to finish with 1:17.27, which managed a total of 2:34.59, the best time recorded by a Mexican in the giant slalom.

Dickson finished 35th out of 47 participants, so he improved 13 places compared to the 48th position he obtained four years ago during his first Winter Olympics.

In this way, with his performance, the Mexican delegation closed activities in Beijing 2022.

“Since its beginnings and until today, the quality in photography and editorial design of Vallarta Lifestyles is unrivaled, because there’s nothing similar in this region of Mexico. Besides, to the foreign community that visit us, this magazine is essential if they want to know what’s new and what’s going on in our destination.”
Eduardo González

“Vallarta Lifestyles is really well positioned. We are aware of that because we have seen people who arrive to our jewelry with the issue or the advertising in hand asking about the product that is featured there. This dynamic is really interesting for us and makes us glad.”
