Oct 2008, skating world cup.

Valerie Maltais (I think...)
(Nothing to do with Valerie, but in at least 3 races the Canadians were disqualified. They were so excited to be in front of a home crowd that they were bumping into other skaters. And they were finishing first, too... There could have been some all-Canadian finals.

Marie-Andree Mendes-Campeau

Jessica Greg, incognito, she's from Alberta, and the crowd loved its local favourites!

Charles Hamelin, won the Gold medal in the 1000m.

Francois Hamelin (Charles' younger brother), won the Bronze medal in the 1000m.
