Max Parrot Captures Canada’s 1st Gold Medal At Beijing Olympics

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Parrot beat improbable odds to compete in the 2022 Olympics

The journey to Beijing was improbable to newly minted Gold Medal Olympic Champion Max Parrot. The Quebec native had taken the 2018 season off to undergo twelve rounds of chemo as he was battling a cancer diagnosis.

While most people would have called it quits, Parrot couldn’t let his cancer diagnosis defeat him. “After battling cancer and living through COVID-19, I’ve learned to just relax and enjoy life.” Said Parrot. The Gold medal will be added to his silver medal earned in the 2018 Olympics

“Congratulations to Max Parrot on the incredible gold-medal performance in slopestyle snowboard. What a thrill it must be for you to be the first Canadian to stand on top of the podium at the 2022 Olympic Winter Games! We can tell you that back in Canada, seeing you with the Canadian flag in your hands and the gold medal around your neck made all of us so proud!

This marks Canada’s first-ever Olympic gold in slopestyle, an event which made its debut at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games. I am confident the whole country, especially young Canadians, joins me in applauding your gold medal. Congratulations to Max Parrot for your hard work and determination and success. Go Canada! Said, the Government of Canada

Parrot is a shining example of perseverance and commitment. As it stands now, Canada’s medal total to six. 1 Gold, 1 Silver and 4 brone.
