On February 14, Alexandre Bilodeau wrote a page in history by becoming the first Olympic gold medalist on Canadian soil. A model of perseverance and a source of inspiration to many, he is proving to be one of Canada's most talented young athletes.

Originally from Rosemère, Alexandre fell in love with freestyle skiing after having seen the spectacular performance of Quebecker Jean-Luc Brassard in Lillehammer, in 1994. On the trail of his idol, he became, at the age of 14, the best junior Canadian in three disciplines: jumps, moguls and dual moguls. He joined the national freestyle moguls ski team at 17 years old and participated in the Olympic Games in Turin in 2006, where he finished in 11th place. That same year, Alexandre won his first competition at the World Cup and became the youngest Moguls freestyle skier to make it to the highest podium in this discipline. He ended the 2005-2006 season in second place in the final medal results.

Alexandre's ascent continued in 2008-2009, as he went on to win the World Championships in dual moguls, and also placed first at the World Cup in freestyle dual moguls. Last February, all Canadians celebrated Alexandre's hard work, dedication and talent when he won the first gold medal on Canadian soil at the Olympic Games in Vancouver.

Bilodeau wishes to pursue his academic studies. He has a very positive, determined and persevering nature that will - without a doubt - charm your audience.
