Team Canada

a golden anniversary

Three years ago today I posted this watercolor to celebrate the Gold Medal win for Team Canada in the Two-Man Bobsleigh at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang by Alexander Kopacz and Justin Kripps. Today I couldn’t be happier to report that the painting has found the perfect home 😊.
 

 

 
On this two year anniversary of their great achievement congratulations once again to our two great Canadian Olympians Alexander Kopacz and Justin Kripps.

in remembrance


 
In memory of one of Canada’s greatest Olympians. Like so many of us I remember the excitement and pride watching Kathleen Heddle, together with her rowing partner Marnie McBean, capturing two gold medals for Canada at the Summer Olympic Games of 1992 in Barcelona and a further gold medal in Atlanta in 1996. Yesterday we learnt the sad news of her passing at the age of 55 after a long battle with cancer. I send my heartfelt condolences to her family and friends. Her beautiful memory is in all of our thoughts today. πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

Olympic Moment VI – Mark Arendz

Thank you and congratulations to Team Canada and to all the athletes of the Pyeongchang Paralympic Games for inspiring us this week, and congratulations to Mark Arendz, Canada’s flag bearer for the closing ceremony, on his six medals including Gold in the 15 K Standing Biathlon. These have been his third Paralympic games since losing his arm at the age of seven in a farming accident.

not just about the medals

Paralympic Moment V

Although Canada’s Michelle Salt may have just missed the podium it’s not only about the medals as her athleticism, optimism and positivity are all inspirational enough.

Hear her “incredible story” in her own words and understand why.
