ItsCanadaTime Congratulates Canadian Immigrants and Their Children in the 2018 Winter Olympics
This year Canada once again finds themselves among the top-ranked countries in the winter Olympics. With the closing ceremony already in the history books, Canada finished with their heads held high in 3rd place. With a total of 29 medals, Canada has broken their personal record of 26 medals previously held in the 2010 Winter Olympics held in Vancouver.
While Canada looks to celebrate their amazing accomplishment, ItsCanadaTime would like take a moment to honor the 1st and 2nd generation Canadians that have so honorably represented our Country:
2018 Olympic Gold? Medalist in the Team Figure Skating Event
Lewis and Karen Chan, both Canadian immigrants from Hong Kong, had high hopes for their son Patrick. I think it’s safe to say he exceeded all their expectations.
Patrick Chan stole our hearts this winter, as he brought home the gold for Canada. Chan earned his team 18 points by placing 1st in the men’s free skate program and giving the Canadians a 6 point lead over the 2nd place Olympic Athletes from Russia.
2018 Olympic Bronze? Medalist in the Two-Women Bobsleigh
2018 was certainly a magical year for Phylicia George as she not only became a dual season Olympian (track and field/ Bobsleigh) but also a winning her first ever Olympic medal for Canada.
Phylicia and teammate Kaillie Humphries finished 3rd in the final event held in Pyeongchang, South Korea, Wednesday, Feb. 21, 2018. The Canadian duo was facing near defeat, sitting in 5th place before their last run of the night. With their last bit of strength George and Humphries closed a five one hundredth of a second gap to earn their place on the podium in 2018.
George, whose parents were born in Grenada, had this to say about the excitement:
“It’s been so exciting to be able to call myself a summer and a winter Olympian, and now to have my first Olympic medal!”
2018 Olympic Bronze? Medalist in Men’s Ice Hockey
Here is a comeback story you love to read about! Nearly 2 years ago, the Polish-born Canadian was fearful he would never be able to walk again, after sliding head first into the boards, resulting in a concussion and a broken neck. The freak accident was Wolski’s farewell to the rest of his hockey season and possibly his career.
That is until he made a full recovery in 2017 and was selected to write his fairy-tail ending with the Canadian National Hockey Team. Not only did Wolski make it back to the ice, but valiantly represented the Canadian flag as he scored a total of three goals for team Canada and earned the right to wear the Bronze medal with his teammates!
