Alexandre Bilodeau

Two Time Gold Olympic Medalist, Freestyle Skiing

Alexandre Bilodeau wrote a page in Canadian history by becoming the first Olympian to win a gold medal on Canadian soil, and repeated his gold medal performance at the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi. A model of perseverance and a source of inspiration to many, he has proved himself to be one of Canada’s most talented young athletes.

A native of Rosemère, Quebec, Alexandre first fell in love with freestyle skiing when he watched Jean-Luc Brassard compete in Lillehammer. Following in the footsteps of his idol, he became the top Canadian junior in freestyle at the age of just 14. His career wasn’t always tinged with glory, however. At times when many would have quit, Alexandre rolled up his sleeves and worked twice as hard to become the best athlete he could be. When he shares this story, he talks about the values that took him to the highest peaks of his sport.

In the 2013-2014 season, the last of his career, he finished second at the first three World Cups, in Finland, Calgary, and Deer Valley. He then went on to climb the highest step of the podium at events where he had known previous success in Deer Valley, Lake Placid, and Val-St-Côme. After impressive performances in Japan and Norway, 26-year-old Alexandre won the last World Cup event of his career in La Plagne.

Alexandre is now pursuing studies in accounting and is planning a career in business. For the man whose motto is “dare to dream big,” there is every reason to believe success will continue to follow, no matter his endeavours.

En devenant le premier athlète de l’histoire du Canada à remporter une médaille d’or en sol canadien lors des Jeux olympiques de Vancouver en 2010, Alexandre Bilodeau a frappé l’imaginaire de toute une nation. En février 2014, il s’est envolé pour Sotchi, son dernier rendez-vous olympique, où il a défendu son titre avec la détermination qu’on lui connait. L’athlète marque l’histoire à nouveau en devenant le premier Canadien à réussir un doublé. Alex Bilodeau sera à jamais double champion olympique.

L’athlète de Rosemère a eu le coup de foudre pour le ski acrobatique en voyant Jean-Luc Brassard s’exécuter à Lillehamer. Sur les traces de son idole il devient, à l’âge de 14 ans, le meilleur junior canadien en ski acrobatique. Sa carrière n’a pas toujours été glorieuse. Là où plusieurs auraient abandonné, c’est là qu’Alex a su se remonter les manches, redoubler d’ardeur et ainsi devenir le meilleur athlète possible. Son récit est riche. Quand il parle de son histoire, il parle de ses valeurs, celles l’ont porté aux plus hauts sommets de son art.

Lors de sa dernière saison en carrière, en 2013-2014, Alexandre a terminé 2e au cours des trois premières Coupes du monde, en Finlande, à Calgary et à Deer Valley, avant de s’emparer de la première marche du podium sur les pistes qu’il connaît bien, soit à Deer Valley, Lake Placid et Val-St-Côme. À la suite de performances tout aussi impressionnantes au Japon et en Norvège l’athlète de 26 ans gagne sa dernière Coupe du monde en carrière à La Plagne. Belle façon de tirer sa révérence!

Alexandre poursuit ses études en comptabilité et compte bien laisser sa trace dans le monde des affaires, comme il l’a fait dans le monde du sport. Pour celui qui a fait de la phrase « osez rêver grand » son leitmotiv, tout laisse croire qu’il y connaîtra autant de succès.
