Congratulations are in order for Canada's Alexandre Bilodeau, he is the first Canadian gold medalist to win on Canadian soil. How cool is that?
And, he seems to be a pretty good guy as well. Reading this story about his older disabled brother, and how he inspires Bilodeau, is beautiful.. and why I really like the Olympics.

And.. Apolo. Anton. Ohno. Congrats Apolo! And Good luck with the rest of your races! I hope those are a little bit less.. scary, lets knock the Koreans out of the race before the final lap! Eh? Or.. maybe not, maybe that's what makes it exciting, but my goodness it makes me so anxious watching him! I can't believe he almost got 4th!
I hope you get the gold in your next race Apolo!
