Canada Day arrives as a stellar year in sport continues

Canada Day arrives as a stellar year in sport continues

By Asif Hossain

It’s fitting that in what has already been an incredible year in Canadian sport, on the nation’s 147th birthday we’ll be keeping our eyes on a few Olympians for Canada Day.

Here are a few things to look for in Canada and beyond on its birthday, including a request for Canadians to join in the #CanadaDay celebrations via Twitter.

Parliament Hill

Morrison and Junio

Seven Sochi 2014 Olympians will be attending the Canada Day ceremonies in Ottawa on July 1, including four-time Olympic medallist Denny Morrison and teammate Gilmore Junio. The story of Junio’s sacrifice at Sochi is one of the highlights of a great 2014. Another speed skater, Anastasia Bucsis, will be at Parliament Hill, as will Olympic women’s hockey gold medallists Genevieve Lacasse and Charline Labonte. Bobsledder and Ottawa resident Cody Sorensen will also join the festivities alongside team figure skating silver medallist Dylan Moscovitch.

#ClarasBigRide

Clara Hughes Bell

Nearly 12,000 kilometres and 110 days after starting her journey, six-time Olympic medallist Clara Hughes will ride into Ottawa to finish her cross-country tour to end the stigma around mental health.

Canada Day at Wimbledon

Olympian Milos Raonic will be hoping to give Canadian tennis fans a special Canada Day in his fourth round Wimbledon tilt with Kei Nishikori of Japan. A future Olympian, Eugenie Bouchard, went through to the quarterfinals on Canada Day eve.

#CanadaDay selfies

In partnership with Twitter Canada, the Olympic Team is asking Canadians all over the world to take selfies with #CanadaDay, especially if they have access to Jason Priestley.
