Canadian Skier Alex Bilodeau Wins Gold! Wins Much More When He Pulled His Disabled Brother Over The Rails To Celebrate!

alex bilodeau sochi olympics gold medal brother frederic cerebral palsy celebrate

Canadian Alex Bilodeau won the freestyle skiing event on Monday in Sochi, and it meant just as much to him as it did his very excited and loving brother!

After clinching the Olympic gold, Alex did the best thing a brother could do: he pulled his brother Frederic, who has cerebral palsy, over the security gate to celebrate with him!

Frederic was told he would not be able to walk beyond the age of 12, yet more than 15 years later there he is standing next to his brother, in Russia, celebrating a huge victory!

This isn't the first time Alex has done something like this either: he won his first gold in 2010 and his brother Frederic was there with him! He has since become something of a celebrity in the disabled community in Canada.

Here's what Alex had to say:

'Just like you or I, he has dreams and most of them are not realisable to him but he does dream about it, he talks about it and he never complains that it's not realistic to him.

'Every day I feel very lucky to be a normal person that has the chance to go after his dreams, and he doesn't have that chance. So out of respect to him, I need to go after that and with his motivation he would be four-time Olympic champion.

'It's crazy the motivation that he takes and every step is very hard for him. In life, I have an easy path and I need to go out there and do the best I can just out of respect to him. He lives his dreams through me. (Two gold medals) is the least I can do, he's my every day inspiration.'

Beautiful!

We are SO happy to see this, and that photo (above) just warms our hearts!

Congrats, Alex!
