Manitoba Olympic gold medallist Jon Montgomery arrived at Winnipeg’s James Richardson International Airport just before 3 p.m. Friday. Montgomery flew in from Toronto in preparation for a homecoming celebration in Russell on Sunday.
The men’s skeleton athlete from the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games was greeted by throngs of well-wishers, friends, family and fans. The Winnipeg Airports Authority invited the public to attend the celebration and volunteers handed out pom-poms to the crowd.
