Montgomery representin' Russell on Oprah

Fourth-Place Medal

Pretty rare attention for a Canadian Olympic athlete: Skeleton gold medalist Jon Montgomery is appearing on Oprah Winfrey today (4 p.m. ET). One can only assume he was asked how the beer tasted.

" 'I tried to sell every bit of the Canadiana as I could,' the 30-year-old from Russell, Man., told reporters Thursday of the segment with a show correspondent.

" 'I was certainly giving props to the good old folks north of the 49th parallel and explaining to them why it is that I'm so proud to be from this greatest place on earth that we call home.

" 'I've always had that sense of pride but to have people say to me, "I'm so proud to be Canadian as a result of what we realized in Whistler the other day" means the world to me."

By the way, notice something about Montgomery's entrance to Canada House? That appears to be an adult beverage in his hand.
