During the 2006 Olympics in Turin Francois Hamelin sat by the television set at home in Montreal and watched his brother Charles help Canada win a silver medal in the short track speed skating relay.
He won't get to do that during the 2010 Games in Vancouver. This time the brothers will be skating together on Canada's Olympic team.
Francois, 22, earned a discretionary spot from a Speed Skating Canada high performance selection committee and was officially named
to Canada's 10-member Olympic team on Wednesday, a week after Olympic selection trials ended at the Pacific Coliseum.
