Thierry Bourdeau - Avenir de l'Est - 1 janvier 2010
C’est fait! Mathieu Giroux s’est offert tout un cadeau du jour de l’an en se qualifiant sur l’équipe canadienne de patinage de vitesse longue piste qui prendra part aux prochains Jeux olympiques de Vancouver, en février.
Mission accomplished by Giroux
Canada's most improbable speed skating story has become a reality.
"It feels just awesome. Finally," Giroux said Friday after learning he had locked up a spot on the Olympic squad. [...] All those choices I made 12 months ago to switch to long-track: Quit school for a year, moving to the West in April, all those choices I made finally paid off," he said.
