Poland’s Pawel Babicki finished 67th of 67 skiers in a World Cup downhill in Bormio, Italy, on Thursday.

But he was the only one to finish with just one ski.

Babicki lost his left ski early in his run and still made it down the course without missing a gate. He traversed the track with one ski for nearly two minutes.

He finished in 2 minutes, 33.42 seconds, or 36.47 seconds behind winner Dominik Paris of Italy.

Babicki’s impressive showing is reminiscent of Bode Miller‘s downhill run in the world championships combined in Bormio in 2005.
