I turned the TV on earlier this evening just in time to see Jon Montgomery‘s gold medal winning skeleton run. And then, as he walked through Whistler amidst a huge crowd of fans on his way to be interviewed on CTV, someone handed him a pitcher of beer, which he proceeded to chug! The pitcher1 reappeared later in the interview when Montgomery was asked to show off his auctioneering skills, which he did with said pitcher. Hilarious!
Montgomery’s medal marks the first Canadian gold won at Whistler and our fourth gold medal of the games! Go Canada Go!
