United States skiier Andrew Weibrecht used an improbable run to win the silver medal in the Super-G at the Winter Olympics in Sochi on Sunday.

Weibrecht hails from Lake Placid, N.Y. but has a Capital Region connection. His mother, Lisa, was raised in Scotia, according to the Albany Times Union.

After winning the bronze medal in the super-G in Vancouver four years ago, Weibrecht battled injury to get back on the podium.

The 28-year-old has had surgeries on both shoulders and has overcome injuries to both ankles since Vancouver.

Weibrecht barely qualified for the United States Olympic team, and finished just 0.30 seconds off the gold medal pace set by Norway’s Kjetil Jansrud.

Weibrecht’s U.S. teammate, Bode Miller, also reached the podium, finishing in a tie for the bronze medal.
