Canada wins gold on home soil!

This is one of those stories that I’m really happy to write a post about. Today the entire country is still cheering for Alex Bilodeau who made Canadian history yesterday after winning the first GOLD medal on Canadian soil, in the Mens Mogul event at the Vancouver Winter Olympics. It’s fitting that he’s the first Canadian to win at home because he embodies great Canadian stereotypes by being so appreciative and humble in victory. I’m sure you’ve seen or will see the promo story about Alex and his older brother Frederic who has cerebral palsy. The piece shows how Alex deserves every good thing that comes to him. He quit hockey when he was younger because Frederic said skiing would be better because it’s was something the entire family could take part in. Since then Alex found his passion for moguls and now it’s lead him to golden status.
Now that we have our first home gold out of the way, how many gold, silver and bronze do you think we’ll take? So far we have one of each. I say we’ll pull in 18 (5 gold, 10 silver, 3 bronze) but I’m no expert.
