Biography

Sidney CROSBY

Scorer of the winning goal for Canada in overtime of the ice hockey final at the 2010 Vancouver Games, Sidney Crosby went on to captain his country to a second successive Olympic title in Sochi four years later.

Vancouver holds its breath

On 28 February 2010, the final day of the Olympic Winter Games, the streets of Vancouver were practically deserted. Its inhabitants could be found gathered in bars or in their living rooms, surrounded by family and friends, intent on witnessing the Olympic ice hockey final between Canada and the USA.

In an absolutely packed Canada Hockey Place, a tense encounter developed in an exceptional atmosphere. At the end of regulation time, the two teams were tied at 2-2. Seven minutes into overtime, Sidney Crosby exchanged passes with Jarome Iginla and slotted the puck between the legs of American goaltender Ryan Miller for a memorable golden goal, delivering an Olympic title that produced joyous celebrations across the country. Crosby, an instant national hero, was feted by his countrymen well into the night.

Hockey in the blood

Born into a family of ice hockey enthusiasts, including a father who had played at junior level, it was somewhat inevitable that Crosby would pick up a stick at an early age. At five, he was already training with local youth teams and practicing in the basement of his home in Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia.
