For the second time 25 years ago, Quebecers chose to be loyal to Canada in a referendum on sovereignty. Out of curiosity, the QMI agency listed all the gold medals Quebec will win at the Olympics in another decision made on October 30, 1995.
During the Summer Olympics (2008 and 2012), representatives of Belle Province only won the podium twice, while in the winter they reached 12 times.
Annie Perreault (Annie Perreault) will become the first athlete in Quebec’s independence movement to be a gold medalist during the Olympics. The short-track speed skater won the 500-meter event in Nagano Prefecture.
Four years later, Mark Cannon returned to the south from our neighbor with two gold medals from his neck. Personally, the famous speed skater won the 500m championship. He also collaborated with compatriots Jonathan Guilmette, François-Louis Treble (François-Louis Tremblay), Eric Bédard and Mathieu Tecott (Mathieu). Turcotte) won the 5000m relay together.
Eric Lamaze may be Quebec’s first athlete to win an Olympic gold medal during the Summer Olympics. The Montreal native and his mount Hickstead won the individual platform jump championship.
Freestyle skier Alexandre Bilodeau became the first Canadian to win a gold medal in Canada. If Quebec were independent, the skier Maëlle Ricker would receive this honor.

The story of the weightlifter Christine Girard is very special. She completed the competition in the fourth tier of the London Olympics. A few years later, when three of her previous players were disqualified for doping, she finally won.
In Russia, Justine Dufour-Lapointe and Bilodeau demonstrated the advantages of the Quebecers in freestyle skiing, and they won the gold medal double.
Charles Hamelin also used his visit to the former Soviet Union to supplement his legend. He won the gold medal of 1500m.
