Olympic Gold Medalist | Host, The Amazing Race Canada

Jon Montgomery captured the hearts of Canadians — and the attention of everyone —during the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics. After years of hard work, training, and perseverance, Montgomery won a gold medal in the skeleton, securing his place in history as one of the best. His celebratory walk through Whistler Village showcased his passion, spirit, and sense of humour — traits that he brings to every platform, whether in front of a live audience or as host of The Amazing Race Canada.

A casual trip to Canada Olympic Park left an indelible mark on Montgomery when he witnessed a skeleton race and immediately fell in love with the sport. In his rookie season, he kicked off his World Cup campaign with a bronze medal, going on to finish in the top ten three more times. He finished sixth overall. His sophomore season saw him earn five podium finishes, including his first World Cup victory and a silver medal at the World Championships. Montgomery placed second overall and from there went on to win his Olympic gold medal at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

Today, Montgomery is the host of the hit TV show, The Amazing Race Canada, which has earned him two Canadian Screen Awards. He also co-hosted the Junos in 2016 with Jann Arden.

Montgomery embraces any opportunity to engage with live and virtual audiences, whether as a keynote or host. He shares his journey from the flatlands of the prairies to the top of the Olympic podium, reminding audiences why the goals we set for ourselves are only as achievable as we believe they are.
