Gold Medalist in Men's Skeleton at the Vancouver 2010 Olympic GamesBook Speaker
In February 2009, Montgomery won the Whistler World Cup, which served as the test event for the Vancouver Olympics. At that time, he called the victory the highlight of his career, adding that it was especially meaningful to win at home in front of family and friends. But what he really yearned for was Olympic gold. At the 2010 Olympics, he defended his home track once more, but this time, he did it in front of the world. The now infamous video of Montgomery chugging a pitcher of beer while walking through the streets of Whistler surrounded by screaming fans is sure to go down in Canadian lore.
Montgomery isn't just a fast slider, he's also a fast talker. He did his first automobile auction in Winnipeg during college and liked it so much he got his auctioneer's certificate. Since graduating from college with a degree in automotive business administration, Montgomery has been working as an auto auctioneer. These days he only works during the off-season, and his summer schedule consists of weekends auctioneering and weekdays selling cars at a Calgary dealership.
