Summary Profile

Dominick is co-founder of B2ten, a privately funded organization that supports Olympic athletes to attain their full potential and seeks to positively impact the Canadian sport system. B2ten raised 33 Million dollars with the purpose of having a significant impact on the Canadian Olympic sport system. Dominick now leads the organization which sees him being involved in the preparation of about 20 athletes at each winter and summer Olympics. His understanding of high-performance and ability to think differently to maximize the result of the athlete and its team relates perfectly to workplace and everyday life reality.

Dominick competed at the 1998 Nagano Olympics in the sport of Mogul Skiing, just two weeks after undergoing a major knee operation. Ranked second in the world at that time, it was a devastating situation where his life-long dream to win a medal vanished in front of him. With the medical team giving him almost no hope of competing, he set his mind to skiing at the Olympics even if it was on one leg.  In the most extraordinary circumstances, Dominick met his goal but soon set a new objective to help others win Olympic medals.

He transitioned into the realm of coaching for the next three Winter Olympics. Dominick achieved great success by redefining the athlete preparation model and in-turn producing three Olympic medals: Jennifer Heil (2006 & 2010) and Alexandre Bilodeau (2010).

After the 2006 Olympics, in wanting to find a solution to the lack of high-performance approach and support in Canada, he co-founded the foundation called B2ten to provide an optimal Olympic preparation to some Canadian athletes.

Since the 2014 Olympics Dominick plays a center role in the Olympic broadcasting team with Radio-Canada as an expert analyst, editorialist and co-host of the closing ceremonies.

Because of his experiences as a business leader, world-class coach, mentor, fundraiser and broadcaster, Dominick’s approach to developing and encouraging athletes to be the very best they is compelling. He makes it easy to understand how the same principals can apply to any type of business!
