2014 AWARDS BANQUET
The Elliot Lake & District Chamber of Commerce is excited about our Annual Awards Banquet that is going to be held on Thursday, October 16th, 2014 at the Salle Rendez-Vous. This year, we are honoured to have as our keynote speaker Jon Montgomery, Host of The Amazing Race Canada and gold medal olympian.
Host of The Amazing Race Canada & Gold Medal Olympian
Jon Montgomery captured the hearts of Canadians and the attention of everyone during the 2010 Vancouver Winter Games. After years of hard work, training and perseverance, Montgomery won a gold medal in the skeleton, securing his place in history as one of the best. His celebratory walk through Whistler showcased his passion, spirit and sense of humour.
A casual trip to Canada Olympic Park left an indelible mark on Jon when he witnessed a skeleton race and immediately fell in love with the sport. Shortly thereafter, he began competing competitively and enjoying quick success.
His start to his rookie season on the World Cup could not have been drawn more perfectly, and he kicked off his Work Cup campaign with a bronze medal finish on his home track in Calgary. He went on to finish in the top ten three more times during the season, finishing sixth overall in the World Cup standings.
Jon’s sophomore season was equally remarkable, where he enjoyed a breakout season by achieving five podium finishes, including his first World Cup victory and a silver medal at the World Championships. He placed second overall on the World Cup, and from there went on to win his Olympic gold medal.
Since then, Jon has remained one of Canada’s favourite ambassadors, not just for sport, but also as the host of CTV’s The Amazing Race Canada.
