What’s new with our Olympians? Delve into their fascinating everyday lives through social media. Here’s a recap of 10 favourite posts this week via our Canadian Olympic athletes on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Week of June 9-15

1. Summer bobsleigh

That’s what Olympic champion Marielle Thompson was up to for her 22nd birthday this week. Best wishes to you, Marielle! Another year just flew by, and what a great one it was for you!

2. Winter may be over…

…but training never is. The countdown to next competition season is already on for the skiing team:

Last day of fitness camp. Look how strong we are! 💪

3. For Kirsten Moore-Towers and her new partner,

nothing beats a nicepaddle-boarding session under the hot rays before going back to the ice.

4. Speed skaters hopped on their bikes to support the Grand défi Pierre Lavoie.

And for Charles Hamelin, François Hamelin and Olivier Jean, it was probably an easy ride all the way.

5. Steve Nash is ready for the soccer World Cup!

Check Nash’s fancy footwork. A ball is a ball, after all. (Video)

Getting ready for my @beckandscore game tomorrow in Rio! !

6. For Arianne Jones, there’s nothing like a round of golf to let off steam.

And she won’t be intimidated by anyone, no matter how big her opponent is.

Sometimes tensions can run high in golf… #elitecamp2014 #lulu

7. No platform? No problem!

A cliff and deep water are all Jennifer Abel needs to have fun in the sun!

8. Back to the 90s

Mike Riddle switches sports to show his prowess at classic Space Jam moves. (Video)

9. Kim Lamarre takes a step back in time…

…dressed in her original uniform visiting her high-school. What an inspirational and touching moment it was!

10. Happy Father’s Day!

Many athletes took the time to thank their very first hero on Father’s Day.
