Learn about memorable moments in the evolution of Alexandre Bilodeau
    TWENTIES
  • 2014
    Age 26
    At the 2014 Winter Olympics, he became the first Olympian in history to defend his gold medal in any freestyle skiing event as well as the first Canadian to defend an individual title since Catriona Le May Doan at the 2002 Winter Olympics.
    More Details Hide Details
    On March 21, 2014, Bilodeau announced he would retire after the 2013–14 FIS Freestyle Skiing World Cup season.
    More Details Hide Details Bilodeau is the son of Serge Bilodeau and Sylvie Michaud. His older brother, Frédéric, was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at a young age and told that he would be unable to walk by the time he was 12. Frédéric is now age 28 and still has the ability to walk. He also has a younger sister, Béatrice. As a child, Bilodeau was an avid hockey player. However, his mother got tired of taking Frédéric, their sister Béatrice and him from one rink to another for hockey games, and instead she encouraged him to sign up for downhill skiing. That decision came shortly after Bilodeau saw Jean-Luc Brassard win Olympic gold in moguls at the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, Norway. So at the age of seven, he decided to quit hockey and try moguls. Bilodeau remains an avid hockey player, albeit recreationally.
    This battle continued at the 2014 Winter Olympics where Bilodeau managed to beat out his counterpart after Kingsbury made a few slight errors in his final run.
    More Details Hide Details Yet once again the two men placed first and second and with the win Bilodeau became the first freestyle skiing gold medalist to defend his Olympic title, and first repeat gold medalist. He became the first Canadian to defend their Olympic gold since Catriona Le May Doan repeated her gold medal performance at the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics in Utah. Le May Doan had been the first Canadian to repeat gold, Bilodeau became the second to do so, and the first male.
    He confirmed at the TV show "Droit au but" that the 2014 Olympics would be his last.
    More Details Hide Details He had taken time away from the sport to focus on his studies for an accounting career at Concordia University. Bilodeau had a lot to say about the potential retirement commenting "Right now, I’m struggling a little bit with the results, but my skiing is there — I’m a better skier than I’ve ever been. I’m not in a rush. I know it's a process to get to Sochi, and that's my goal. It's going to be one of the last races of my career and of my life, so I think what's important is to have fun. I thought before 2010 I was retiring, I was doing the 2011 season and then retiring the year after. And then through 2011, I was like, ‘Will I regret it? Will I regret it to not try to defend my medal? I think it's a great challenge".
  • 2013
    Age 25
    At the 2013 World Championships Bilodeau placed second behind the upcoming Kingsbury who won his first World Championship.
    More Details Hide Details Bilodeau then went on to compete in the dual moguls final. There he would go up against a familiar foe in teammate Kingsbury, he would defeat him there in the final and achieving his third consecutive title as World Champion in dual moguls. Much of the World Cup season building to the Olympics saw Bilodeau seesawing with teammate Kingsbury, with the younger skier getting the better of Bilodeau on top of the podium more often as the duo repeatedly placed one-two.
  • 2009
    Age 21
    Bilodeau did not win a World Cup event during the 2009–10 season and finished fourth in the World Cup standings with 347 points, behind winner Dale Begg-Smith, who accumulated 693 points.
    More Details Hide Details The following season, Bilodeau finished on the podium several times leading up to the World Championships. At the Worlds, Bilodeau won the silver medal in the moguls event, finishing ahead of countryman Mikaël Kingsbury. Bilodeau would next compete in the dual moguls event at the World Championships. He advanced through to final where he found himself competing head-to-head with Kingsbury. Bilodeau went on to win the gold and defend his world title in the dual moguls event after Kingsbury fell navigating the moguls.
    At the 2009 Freestyle World Championships he finished eighth in the moguls event and followed that by winning gold in the dual moguls.
    More Details Hide Details Bilodeau was a member of the Canadian moguls team going to the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. He started the competition on Sunday, February 14 in favourable conditions. This was in contrast to the previous day for the women in which they skied in rain, sleet, and generally slushy conditions. Bilodeau finished the qualification run in 2nd place overall. In the final run, Bilodeau threw a back double full on the first jump and followed it with a back iron cross on the second. His jump and style scores combined with the second fastest run of the night, saw him scoring 26.75 points to win the gold. With the gold he became the first Canadian to win a gold medal during a Canadian-hosted Olympics. The gold medal victory elicited celebrations across Vancouver and Canada. Canadians celebrated around the Vancouver Olympic cauldron and crowds spilled onto Robson Street in downtown Vancouver waving the flag and singing the Canadian national anthem. 22,000 people entered BC Place Stadium the next day to witness his medal presentation. Following his Olympic medal Bilodeau together with Jennifer Heil made a $25,000 donation to charity. Bilodeau chose to give his to Canadian Association of Pediatric Health Centres for cerebral palsy. Bilodeau and Heil encouraged others to give to charity saying that they have the ability to give back and if others were to help in their own way it would make a difference.
    Following these victories Bilodeau clinched the 2009 overall moguls title on February 20.
    More Details Hide Details
    In February 2009, he won four straight World Cup events and was part of two Canadian sweeps of the men's podium in moguls.
    More Details Hide Details He achieved this together with Vincent Marquis and Pierre-Alexandre Rousseau.
  • 2008
    Age 20
    He was the FIS World Cup champion for the 2008–09 season winning the moguls and overall freestyle skiing title that season.
    More Details Hide Details In his final World Cup race, he retired with a win, and in doing so, surpassed Jean-Luc Brassard for the most World Cup medals by a Canadian. In 2006, Bilodeau finished 12th at the Olympics and later in the world cup season he became the youngest athlete in history to win a World Cup moguls event.
