Canada’s long wait for a first Olympic gold medal on home soil is over after Alexandre Bilodeau won the men’s moguls event in Vancouver.
Bilodeau, 22, finished ahead of Australia’s reigning champion Dale Begg-Smith and American Bryon Wilson.
It ended a 34-year wait and sparked wild celebrations at Cypress Mountain.
Canada had never won an Olympic gold medal in their homeland, failing to capture any at the 1976 Montreal Summer Games or the 1988 Calgary Winter Games.
Alexandre Bilodeau (born September 8, 1987) is a Canadian freestyle skier from Montreal, Quebec. Bilodeau currently resides in Rosemère, Quebec. He won a gold medal in the men’s moguls at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, becoming the first Canadian to win a gold medal at an Olympics held in Canada.
One’s youth square rules ages zero to twenty-seven, and is the sum of the first three letters of the first name and the month of birth.
Alexandre September 8th, 1987
1 (A (1st letter of the alphabet)) + 12 (L (12th letter of the alphabet)) + 5 (E (5th letter of the alphabet)) + 9 (September) = 27
So his ages zero to twenty-seven are ruled by the number 27.
27 = Take the initiative. Taking the first step. Get started. Getting started. Start it up. Turning over a new leaf. No harm in trying. Do what you will, but be the first.
