    CANADIAN SPORT AWARDS At the start of the 1997-98 season, Canada's men's short track relay team was ranked fourth in the world. By late March 1998, they were number-one.

    The quintet of Eric Bedard of Ste-Thecle, Que., Derrick Campbell of Calgary, Francois Drolet of Les Saules, Que., Marc Gagnon of Montreal and Mathieu Turcotte of Sherbrooke, Que., won the gold medal at the Olympic Games and followed that with victories at the world team championships and world championships.

    "All year we came through when we had to," said Gagnon who added a fourth individual world title as well. "I think it was important to win at every event and leave no doubt that we are the best, no question."

    At the Olympics, Canada's main rival in the relay, South Korea, refused to shake hands and claimed the Canadians had been lucky. It set the stage for an exciting rematch at the world championships a few weeks later. The Canadians won again by 18/100ths of a second.
