Coquitlam’s Kevin Reynolds brings home silver medal in team figure skating
23-year-old Kevin Reynolds’ passion for skating started early.
The Coquitlam resident loves to compete and was determined to make it to the Olympics, and now he has, living his dream and bringing home a silver medal in team figure skating in Sochi.
It was 12 years ago in 2002, when Team Canada first rolled out then 12-year-old Kevin in Vancouver.
Less than five feet tall, he was pegged as Canada’s future in figure skating.
In the last dozen years, Reynolds has grown up and gained a huge following.
They love him in figure skating-crazy Japan, saying he resembles a video game character.
He’s known for his quadruple salchows, and he’s considered one of the best jumpers in the world.
Reynolds gets another chance to win another medal this week, in the men’s individuals.
