Still in his prime, François, a business graduate at the University of Montreal, is entering his 12th year on the Canadian national short track team.
Known for his lightning speed and intelligent strategy, François has added considerable depth to the team that won the Team Relay at the Vancouver 2010 Olympics in one of the most dramatic and lively Canadian sport events in history.
