Inspiration? My Brother!

17Feb14

Canada’s Alex Bilodeau explained his motivation after becoming the first freestyle skier to repeat his gold medal win: “When I’m on my skis my colleagues are my inspiration. They are pushing me every day to be a better skier – to go faster, to go longer. But a four-year process is very long, and when I wake up in the morning, it’s my brother.”

See the NBC background piece on Alex and his brother Frederic, who has cerebral palsy,here. Says Alex: “I always complain – and he has every reason in the world to complain, and he never does. And why is that? He enjoys life. He takes the best out of it.”
