The Canadian Globe and Mail recently profiled rising Canadian Star Alex Harvey.
This was destined to be a summer of baby steps for Alex Harvey. At 20, coming off his first season on Canada’s national cross-country ski team, his Olympics were supposed to be more than four years away – Sochi 2014, not Vancouver-Whistler 2010.
Devon Kershaw and Ivan Babikov were Canada’s best medal hopes among the men, while Harvey would be at the 2010 Winter Games primarily to learn, simply to experience the Olympics in preparation for bigger things to come.
At least that was the story, until he turned expectations on their head.
