Olympic Stud of the Day: Francois-Louis Tremblay

There were plenty of events on NBC last night (and what seemed like 984574 hours of close-ups of poor Julia Mancuso bawling), but the highlight for me was the men's 500m speed skate. I know Apolo Anton Ohno is amazing (and his dad in the stands is adorable), but I was more intrigued by the Canadians. Charles Hamelin (I'll get more into him later) started the night off on a high note, leading the pack and setting an Olympic record of 41.463 seconds. How did his teammate, and Olympic Stud of the Day, Francois-Louis Tremblay follow that? He skated his derrière off and beat that time by .05 seconds, setting a record and winning his heat in 41.397 seconds. Tremblay, a.k.a. The Boucherville Bomber, is 29 and most likely competing for the last time in the Olympics. For him to set this record on home soil is awesome. When he's not setting records, the Quebec native is playing the guitar and listening to music. Gotta love a man who's both athletic and artistic.
