I’m going to talk to you about Jasey-Jay Anderson. He is an Olympic Snowboarder who is 34 years old and he was born in April of 1975.  He was born in Val-Morin, Quebec. Jasey-Jay’s parents were both ski instructors and his brother Jayme introduced him to snowboarding. At the age of 14 Jasey-Jay won his first medal. He won more than 24 gold medals.

Jasey-Jay loves to do a lot of things for example: water activites, such as canoeing, kayaking and surfing, but most are in summer such as hiking, kite boarding, mountain biking. For winter it’s snowshoeing and cross country skiing. The last hobby he has is painting. All of  these are cool hobbies and he loves them all. Continue reading

Quebec Olympic Athletes: Valérie Maltais

Valerie Maltais is a Canadian speed skater for the Olympics. She is a student. She was born in Canada in La Baie and her birth date is the 7th of April in 1990.Today,she is 20 years old and her height is 5.4(163 cm) and her weight is 52 kg (115 lbs). She has been starting to play since 2005. Her trainers are Martin Gagné, and Sébastien Cross. Her hobbies are to rollerblade, going to the movies, photography, the outdoors, cycling and to spend time with her friends, plus, she also has a club. It’s called Les F18 de La Baie: Canada.

Now for my opinion, I say Valérie is very talented and a very fast speed skater. I wonder why she chose that sport? Because she’s good at it, it’s her passion, as like her dream, or because she wanted to be famous and have fans plus it’s what she wants as a sport? I think it’s because it’s her passion and dream. I find it’s a good sport and looks fun to do. This was my Olympic person I’m interested in. I’m interested in it because maybe I’d want to do the same as her when I grow up.

To move on with the rankings, here are the latest results she made lately. For the World Championships,she got 3rd place in a 3000 meter Relay in 2009 at Vienna,AUT. For the World Team Championships, she got 4th place with her team in 2009 at Heerenveen, NED, and the World Cups, she won 3rd place in a 3000 meter Relay in 2009/2010 at Marquette,MI,USA plus a silver medal for the National Medals She mostly won 3rd place in Relays.
