Heather Moyse is home.

The two-time Olympic gold medallist arrived Wednesday morning at the Charlottetown Airport.

“It’s just so good to be home,” an emotional Moyse told reporters.

The Summerside native teamed with Calgary’s Kaillie Humphries to win the bobsled title in Sochi, Russia a week ago today. The team defended their Olympic title from the Vancouver Games four years earlier.

“I guess when you do it twice, it just shows the first one wasn’t by accident. It wasn’t by chance,” Moyse said.

“It’s really difficult to do a . . . back-to-back gold medal and it’s a sport that comes down to hundredths of a second.”

Moyse and Humphries were Canada’s flag bearers for the closing ceremony in Sochi.

A welcome home celebration is planned for Friday in Summerside beginning at 6 p.m. at the Credit Union Place.
