Alex Bilodeau: Canada's First Golden Canadian
So who is Alex Bilodeau? Well, single handedly he's become the talk of an entire nation. Alex has won Canada's first gold medal EVER on Canadian soil. Ever since the Montreal Olympics were opened in 1976, no Canadian has won a gold medal in Canada. It's true; no gold in Montreal. No gold in Calgary in 88. That's 33 years 7 months of waiting.
It's in the history books now. Alex Bilodeau just ensured a speaking career for the rest of his life. Well done!
So, can Canada earn more gold medals now that this dry streak is over?
