Laurent Duvernay-Tardif never thought he’d be working at an Olympics.

“I don’t think football is going to be at the Olympics any time soon,” he quipped.

When he was young, the Chiefs’ right guard from Canada quit the only Olympic sport in which he participated, cross-country skiing, because it was way too tough.

“I was never good at it to ever see myself at the Olympics,” he said. “It was too hard for me.”

It stood to reason that if anyone in the Duvernay-Tardif family was going to be at an Olympics, it would be his two sisters, Marilou and Delphine, who compete in rowing and cross-country skiing, respectively.

“I’m sure they’re going to be at the Olympics one day as athletes,” he said.

But the 6-foot-5, 321-pound lineman found another way to get to the Winter Games this month: as a reporter for Radio-Canada. In doing so, he knocked another item off his bucket list.
