Alexandre Bilodeau (born on September 8, 1987) is a Canadian freestyle skier from Montreal, Quebec. When he won the Gold Medal in Men’s Moguls at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic Games he became the first Canadian to win a gold medal at an Olympics held in Canada.


Mogul Man

Alexandre, a member of the Canadian moguls team, started out the Men’s Moguls competition on Sunday, February 14, 2010, in favorable conditions. Some people had worried the weather would be really bad, as it had been for the Women’s Moguls race the day before, but the weather was clear and the snow was perfect for the monumental event.


Before he got to the finals, Alexandre finished the qualification run in second place overall. But at the moment that counted most, he managed to throw a back double full on the first jump of his run down the bumpy moguls hill and followed it up with an iron cross on the second. Together with the second-fastest run of the night he scored 26.75 Points to win the Gold.



In 2006, Alexandre had finished 11th at the Olympics and later, during the World Cup season, he became the youngest athlete in history to win a World Cup Moguls event. In the 2005-06 overall World Cup standings he managed to finish second and won the FIS Rookie Of The Year title.


Last year, in February 2009, Alexandre won four straight World Cup events and was part of two Canadian sweeps of the men’s podium in moguls. He achieved this together with Vincent Marquis and Pierre-Alexandre Rousseau. Following these victories Alexandre clinched the 2009 overall moguls title on February 20. At the 2009 Freestyle World Championships he finished eighth in the moguls event and followed that by winning gold in the dual moguls.


His Hero

Alexandre says his hero and biggest inspiration has always been his older brother, Frederic, who has cerebral palsy. Frederic was standing front row centre at the Olympic Men’s Moguls event, cheering his brother on with a huge grin on his face. After the race was over, Alexandre announced that he was dedicated his Gold Medal to his brother and best friend, Frederic.
