Favorite Sport Memory:
The 500m in Salt Lake City (2002 Olympics) when Marc Gagnon and Jonathan Guilmette finished 1st and 2nd. I was at home alone because all my familly was at a competition in Quebec City. When the guys passed the finish line, I was all over the place jumping around. I called everyone just to be sure to celebrate with someone!! hahaha (it was just a great night!)
