1. Alex Bilodeau defended his title in freestyle moguls on Monday night, making him the first Olympic freestyle skier to win multiple gold medals.
He was also the first Canadian to win a gold medal at the Vancouver Games back in 2010, where he won for the same event.
2. Alex credits his brother, Frederic, as his inspiration.
3. Frederic was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at a young age, and doctors said that he probably wouldn’t be able to walk past the age of 10.
4. Alex discussed Frederic, now 28, in a 2010 interview:
“He’s 28, and he still walks, so where’s the limit for each of us? If his limit was at 10, and he’s 28 and still walking, nobody’s gonna’ tell me my limit is there.”
