Canadian Moments~ Vancouver 2010

1. Alexandre Bilodeau- A strong sense of nationalism; Canada's first ever gold on 'home soil'. This 22 year old won his gold with support from his older brother, Frederic. A touching scene to witness.

2. Maelle Ricker- First women to win a medal at these games; a gold medalist. She is 31 years old. In this difficult sport of snowboard cross, she proved she was a medal winner from the beginning, taking a good lead on her opponents.

3. Christine Nesbitt- Originally from Australia, this 24 year old pushed in the Ladies 1000m race, bringing home another gold for Canada. After a silver in Turin, Christine new that she was ready to go up another step.

Sorry that these are just Three of our amazing athletes. But if you want to support our country, look them up yourself.

The End.
