Quebec's Despatie : Hi-Ho, Silver!
I have an affinity for all things from Quebec -- OK, not poutine! So of course I was rooting for diver Alexandre Despatie last night during the springboard diving competition at the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games.
The 23-year-old, born in Montreal, picked up the silver medal, one of four that Canada won on Tuesday. The Laval resident also received a silver four years ago in Athens.
It's been a long journey for Despatie, who has recently suffered from an injured back and a broken foot.
Read about his victory in The Gazette.
