Canadian Olympians continue to shine

It was a very successful day for three Canadian Olympians. Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford won gold in pairs skating at the NHK Trophy in Osaka, Japan, while Manny Osborne-Paradis earned silver in the men's downhill at Lake Louise.

It's been almost a year since the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, but several Canadian athletes are still making their country proud on the international stage. 

Saturday was a great day for Canadian Olympians. Pair figure skaters Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford earned gold in Japan for their second victory of the season on the Grand Prix circuit. They were part of the Canadian figure skating team that took home silver in Sochi. 

Duhamel didn't take very much time to bask in her victory. The 28-year-old tweeted that she is already looking forward to the 2014-15 Grand Prix final in Barcelona, which will be held Dec. 11-14. 


At Lake Louise, alpine ski racer Manny Osborne-Paradis took home silver on home soil. The 30-year-old North Vancouver native reached the World Cup podium for the first time since 2010. 


Osborne-Paradis competed in the 2006, 2010, and 2014 Winter Olympics for Canada.
