Jon Montgomery Gold Medal Olympian | Host, The Amazing Race Canada 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–traits that he brings to every platform, whether in front of a live audience or acting as the host of The Amazing Race Canada. A casual trip to Canada Olympic Park left an indelible mark on Montgomery when he witnessed a skeleton race and immediately fell in love with the sport. Shortly thereafter, he began competing competitively and enjoying quick success. Montgomery’s start to his rookie season on the World Cup could not have been drawn more perfectly, and he kicked off his World 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. His 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 he went on to win his first Olympic gold medal at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics.

Opening My Eyes to the Open Road: Travelling Canada by RV

It's been a very, very long time since I've had any extra time on my hands, but this is precisely where I found myself this summer. I wanted to make the most of it and I wanted to go on a trip that I would never forget. And that's how I discovered RVing.
