About Alex Bilodeau: When Alexandre Bilodeau flew down the moguls during his last race of the 2010 Vancouver Olympics, he had already made his mark in the skiing world. When he became the first ever Canadian to win a gold medal on home soil, he instantly captured an entire nation’s heart. From coast to coast, his exploit elicited passion and pride. On his journey, he learned that determination and courage were the key to earning this medal, and it was his brother Frédéric, who suffers from cerebral palsy, who taught him that valuable lesson.
