This is Randy Gregg. He's better known as the licensed doctor who just happened to play defense with the Edmonton Oilers dynasty in the 1980s. But he was also a big believer in the Olympic ideal.
Gregg's first taste of the Olympics came in 1980 at Lake Placid. He joined the Canadian national team was a big believer in Father David Bauer's old program of athletics and academics. Eight years later Gregg actually took a year away from the mighty Oilers so that he could return to the Olympics, this time held just down the road in Calgary.
Gregg never won a medal, but his Olympic experiences rank just as high as his Stanley Cup championships. And now he is passing his Olympic ideals on to his children.
Jessica Gregg will represent Canada in the short track speed skating events. Jamie Gregg will participate with the long track team. Younger daughter Sarah is expected to challenge for a spot speed skating roster in 2014.
It should be noted that Dr. Gregg's fatherly influence on this next generation of Olympians is greatly aided by the kid's mother. Kathy Gregg is a former Canadian speed skater (she met Randy at the 1980 games) and has been the kid's coach.
