Canada Games alumni thriving at 2018 Olympic Winter Games

Canada Games alumni have been firing on all cylinders in PyeongChang, making Canada proud and capturing multiple medals.

The first came during Mark McMorris' epic run that saw him take home bronze in Men's Slopestyle. McMorris, who wore the green and white of Saskatchewan at the 2007 Canada Winter Games, overcame many obstacles throughout the year.

The second medal involved Kaetlyn Osmond, who represented Team NL at the 2007 Canada Winter Games. Kaetlyn, alongside teammates Meagan Duhamel, Eric Radford, Tessa Virtue, Scott Moir, Patrick Chan and Gabrielle Daleman stood on the podium together as they captured Team Canada's first gold medal of these Games.

The third medal was captured by Kaitlyn Lawes and John Morris in mixed doubles curling. The 2003 Team Manitoba alumna and her teammate made history winning the event's first ever Olympic gold medal.

The fourth came when Justin Kripps and Alex Kopacz tied Germany for gold in two-man bobsleigh. Kripps represented Team BC in athletics at the 2005 Canada Summer Games.

The fifth medal was captured by Cassie Sharpe in women's halfpipe. Cassie represented Team BC at the 2011 Canada Winter Games.
