A two-time Olympian, Christine Sinclair led the London 2012 Games with a record-setting six goals to lift Canada to a bronze medal and earn herself the honour of carrying the flag at the Closing Ceremony .

Sinclair is widely recognized as the greatest player to ever come out of Canada. She has spent the last 12 years with the Canadian team, participating in three FIFA World Cups (2003, 2007, 2011) and the 2008 Olympic Games. Among her individual accomplishments is a “Top-5 Player in the World” status for the last decade.

Besides winning a gold medal at the 2011 Pan American Games, one of the most memorable moments of Sinclair’s 2011 campaign was the free-kick goal she scored against two-time defending champion Germany in the opening match of the 2011 World Cup.

Sinclair is Canada’s all-time leader in caps and goals and the reigning Soccer Canada Player of the Year. Five times she has been nominated as the FIFA World Player of the Year.

Sinclair hails from Burnaby, B.C., and played most recently for Western New York. She played her college soccer at the University of Portland, where she set an all-time Division I goal-scoring record with 39, was named “Academic All-American of the Year” by ESPN The Magazine, and won the 2005-2006  Honda-Broderick Cup as the collegiate “Woman Athlete of the Year.”
