Marianne St-Gelais and Charles Hamelin

Marianne St-Gelais and Charles Hamelin

I suppose that, if you were following the olympics, you would have seen the video of Charles Hamelin winning his first gold in men's 500m short track speed skating and, perhaps more memorably, seen double silver medallist Marianne St-Gelais frantically cheering her boyfriend on to victory (if you don't want to hear that miserable "I Believe" again, turn off the volume before pressing play):

Here, they are both looking a little calmer but no less happy. With Kalyna Roberge, smiling, in black on the far left, there were permanent smiles all around. I would be too if my girlfriend and I had just won four olympic medals. Between the three of them, they have won one bronze medal, four silvers and two golds at two olympic games. The success doesn't seem to have gone to their heads.

They were very gracious and humble, answered all of my questions as if they had never been asked before and enthusiastically accepted my request for a photo.

Thank you all very much.
