Alex Bilodeau made history a habit on Monday night. He became the first Canadian man to repeat as Olympic champion in an individual event. He was also the first Canuck to win a home gold back at Vancouver 2010. His rival and friend Mikaël Kingsbury won the silver tonight. Earlier in the day Charles Hamelin won the short track 1500m at Iceberg.
History will be made in 2016 when Rio de Janeiro, Brazil hosts the Games of the XXXI Olympiad, marking the first time that a South American country will welcome the world to an Olympic Games. It is also just the third time that the Games will be held in the southern hemisphere, following Melbourne 1956 and Sydney 2000.
