See Sweet Moment Between Brothers at Olympics

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," an Olympian shares his glory with his brother who has cerebral palsy. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Four years ago, Alexandre Bilodeau became a hero to Canada by winning the country's first gold medal of the 2010 Games. His upset win in the men's moguls lifted the spirits of the nation concerned with the slow start of its athletes. And the victory was even more poignant when Bilodeau celebrated with his brother Frederic.

Was it too much to ask for an encore Monday? No one had done it before in men's moguls.

Bilodeau, on his last Olympic run, was astonishing and won in brilliant style.

Again the brothers met in a long celebratory hug as Canadians cried, then the Bilodeaus held the country's flag up for fans to see.

"It was amazing," Alexandre said of celebrating with Frederic. "My brother is my everyday inspiration. Like I say all the time, if he had the life that I have lived, he would be a three-time Olympic champion."
