Jon Montgomery’s life has been a whirlwind since his Olympic win in skeleton, his big-time podium moment to get the gold medal, and his now-famous victory walk through Whistler Village.
But Jon Montgomery’s about more than just the frosty, golden beer that gave him instant folk-hero status with so many Canadians from coast-to-coast-to-coast.
From an appearance on Oprah, an overwhelming homecoming in Russell, Manitoba and a presentation at the Juno Awards — where he auctioned off teen-idol Justin Bieber’s cell number on the streets of St. John’s — Jon Montgomery has been sharing his Olympic success and national pride with as many Canadians as possible.
He’s also committed to defending his gold medal in Sochi 2014 and will look to share his Olympic experience with fiancée Darla Deschamps, also a promising skeleton athlete and 2014 Olympic hopeful.
Jon welcomes the opportunity to get together with youth and corporate audiences alike, maybe auction off something sentimental for your charity, or engage your employees with stories of a young guy from the prairies who did something incredible for our country and reminded us all that it’s alright to be proudly Canadian and celebrate the good times.
That’s being Jon Montgomery.
