Now he is back on ice in his Canadian country. It was a very emotional moment for both Vince Mallet and his family.
On CTV Ottawa News Camera Crew With him.
BZ from his daughter Alyssa Malt: We were not sure if he could still stand on ice skates and skates. “All leads to the moment when Mallet steps on the ice with certainty and certainly in his lap.
Alyssa recounts how her father had had Alzheimer’s disease since last summer: “It was a difficult year for her. He can no longer do anything independently. He can no longer read, no longer write, no longer a proper conversation. He is moving slowly now, ”the 29-year-old said of the effects of the disease.
“We also had to tie the laces on their skates”, reports Elisa. So it was all the more amazing how his father shined on the ice – as if he had never been ill. And he also clearly likes how well he skates. A happy smile crosses the former polar bear coach’s face several times.
