It is fairly rare for foreigners to top those courses. For LIME, his US Navy squadron wanted him there: they gave their one slot to a Canadian. This is something quite special.
Good on him. Seriously.
We often see Canucks topping the US Ranger courses too, which is also awesome.
What we forget is that Canada is a small country, population wise. When someone from a country of 30 million tops a course in a country of 300 million, that's alot of competitors that they've managed to outperform.
