#OlympicNine is a weekly look at some of our favourite images from Canadian Olympians and Olympic hopefuls on Instagram.

Latest images feature nine great shots, including speed skater Nicole Garrido giving the iconic Red Mittens some Russian exposure, our Athlete of the Week Gillian Carleton captures cycling teammate Laura Brown atop the podium in Manchester and Spencer O’brien counts down to catching big air.

November 4 to 10.
