O Canada! Bilodeau brings home the gold to Canada
Alexandre Bilodeau wins the gold medal in men’s moguls to give
Canada its first Olympic victory on home turf.
Bilodeau scored 26.75 points Sunday night to upset defending
Olympic champion Dale Begg-Smith, a Vancouver native who now
competes for Australia. Bryon Wilson of the United States took
Bilodeau’s victory marks the first time a Canadian has won an
Olympic event in the three times the games have been held inside
Canada’s borders. The previous Canadian Olympics were in 1976 in
Montreal and 1988 in Calgary.
