" Track ... Canada Gold at Holmenkollen " .... Dedicated to Paulo Saldanha & team at Premier Studio

Alex Harvey 22

Devon Kershaw 28

Justin Wadsworth coach and his team

 

Won Canada's first ever Gold medal at the world Xcountry championships in Norway yesterday

 

I used to ski race

When I would come from behind a skier

I would utter " track " ( Get out of the way )

 

Paulo and his outstanding team are just getting athlete's physically prepared to be the best of the world

I had lunch with my friend the day before yesterday

Paulo is giving back as he once committed to a few of us that he would

He is helping with the great team he assembled to ....

Transform Canada from an amateur sport backwater into a world amateur sport powerhouse

High sports ethics are the values he lived by ( no PED's )

Those are the values he transmits

Pierre Harvey Alex's dad was the first Canadian and Quebec amateur athlete to break the Nordic skiing sound barrier

He won the famed 50 km H... in Norway on his last race ever

Pierre was a loose electron ( complete anomaly )

A mozart in in a land of excellent street music players

Pierre also pulled Steve Bauer to an Olympic road race cycling silver medal in the LA Olympics

His son Alex , Devon and the excellent Xcountry coaching staff achieved a huge first yesterday !

In the land where it all began

Norway

As with his father Pierre who laid the original tracks

Alex and his relay team mate Devon

Received Canada's first Nordic Gold at a World Championship

From the king of Norway

In front of 50,000 Norwegian ski mad fans

Bravo Paulo & team

For laying the foundation

For putting down the tracks to follow in search of Canadian amateur sport excellence
