My favorite olympic story

Even better than the story of our own local hero, is the inspiring relationship between Alexandre and Frédéric Bilodeau.

Quoting CTV:
“Whenever Alexandre Bilodeau had a tough time during training, he'd think of his older brother Frédéric, 28, who was born with cerebral palsy and whom doctors said wouldn't walk after the age of 10.

The older Bilodeau proved them wrong and not only walks but skis, taking on some of the toughest slopes at St. Sauveur, Que., not far from the family home near Montreal.”

Frédéric is mostly confined to a wheel chair. But, to some extent, he still walks. I assume Frédéric uses an adaptive ski chair.

NBC did a great human interest story on these two brothers. But, they have yet to add the video to their web site. I hope they correct that massive oversight soon.
