Jon Montgomery
Host of The Amazing Race Canada
Age 38
Hometown Russell, Manitoba, Canada

Jon Montgomery is the host of The Amazing Race Canada. He is an Olympian and has won a gold medal for Canada in skeleton racing at the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Montgomery was born in Manitoba but spent time as a young adult in Calgary, where he worked as an auctioneer. He went to the skeleton tracks with his mother one day and was instantly hooked on the sport.

He won his first World Cup race in Cesana, Italy in 2008 and has won two silver medals at the 2008 FIBT World Championships in Altenberg, Germany. He finished in second place in the 2007–08 Skeleton World Cup.

Following this, Montgomery qualified for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver, Canada. Montgomery won the gold medal by 0.07 seconds in Men's Skeleton. He celebrated his victory quite jubilantly, then immediately apologized to second-place finisher Martins Dukurs, as he felt that showboating before your competitors after a victory is uncalled for. Montgomery then marched through a crowd of Canadian fans singing the national anthem and chugging a pitcher of beer in celebration of his victory. He is, to this day, very proud of his victory and hopes to inspire all amateur athletes around the world.

He still works as an auctioneer when not skeleton racing. He is an alumnus of the Canadian Automotive Institute.

Montgomery was announced as the host of the Canadian version of the race not long before the program aired.
