In an Olympic Games defined by valiant efforts that fell just short, Christine Sinclair has been chosen to carry the Canadian flag at this evening’s closing ceremonies.
Canada’s greatest female footballer has done this before, as she carried the Maple Leaf during the opening ceremonies at last year’s Pan Am Games in Mexico.
Canada’s lone gold-medalist, Rosie MacLennan and Men’s 4x100m Relay captain Jared Connaughton – more tears, argh – also deserved a fair look.
Hard to complain with the choice. Christine Sinclair for Prime Minister.
