A Conversation with Olympic Champion and Amazing Race Canada host Jon Montgomery

Jon Montgomery became a celebrated Canadian when he defied great odds to win gold in Skeleton at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games – beating out his closest opponent by 7/100th of a second. Jon celebrated his victory with his famous “beer walk” through Whistler Village directly following his race, celebrating with Canadians who lined the streets, reflecting his zest for life, his pride in being Canadian and his love for great beer. He has gone on to become a compelling inspirational speaker and you may recognize him as the outgoing and engaging host of The Amazing Race Canada.

During this 1-hour conversation, you’ll learn from and interact with Jon, including his journey as the first Canadian Skeleton racer to win Olympic gold on home soil, to his experience as the host of The Amazing Race Canada, and what it means to support Canadian athletes in the years to come.

Hearing Jon’s journey firsthand is inspiring and his lust forlife is contagious, pushing us all to discover what we are truly capable of. Reminding us that while we might have a few bumps in the road of life, if we believe in ourselves and never, never, never give up, our possibilities are endless.
