Alexandre Bilodeau

I admit that I am kinda getting into this whole Olympic thing...I am not a TV Watcher, but I have been tuning in to watch a little...

Tonight, CTV had a short clip with Rick Hansen called "The Difference Makers". It was a five minute or so story about Alexandre Bilodeau ...one of Canada's mogul skiing competitors. It got me...

Alexandre fell in love with hockey at a VERY young age (2'ish) and, from all accounts, was very good at it...but, he has an older brother, Frederic, who has cerebral palsy. Frederic's disability wouldn't allow him to play hockey, but skiing was a sport that he could limitedly participate in with Alexandre. The clip showed how close the two brothers are and how much they love each other. Apparently, Frederique accompanies Alexandre to all of his competitions and is in Cyprus tonight.

What a heart-warming story that was. I love stories like these. I hope my boys will be that close when they grow up. Pin It
