Team Canada athletes explore Beijing’s Olympic Village and venues
Team Canada’s Olympians don’t get jet lag. Instead, adrenaline motivates them to scout out venues, explore the Olympic Village, and even cycle as far as they are allowed within the closed loop.
We’re just days away from Beijing 2022 and many of our athletes have already touched down in Beijing. Let’s take a look at what some of them have shared with their fans so far.
It wouldn’t be a walk through the Village without taking a pic with the rings! Bobsledder Melissa Lotholz is thrilled to be competing in her second Olympic Games.
Curler Rachel Homan had a great time scouting out the Ice Cube – formerly known as the Water Cube, where swimming and diving events took place during the 2008 Summer Olympics.
You’ll only see one of them hit the ice at a time, but scouting out the Beijing National Indoor Stadium was a team effort for ice hockey goalies Kristen Campbell, Ann-Renée Desbiens and Emerance Maschmeyer.
Biathlete Adam Runnalls has already wrapped up his first training session on Olympic ground. He doesn’t look exhausted, but the snowy moustache lets us know he had a productive first run.
Team Canada is ready to rumble and the wait is almost over. In the meantime, be sure to check out when your favourite events are running with Beijing’s official schedule.
