Congratulations to Damian Warner, Decathlon Olympic Champion of the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games. With his Olympic record-setting 9018 points he becomes only the fourth athlete ever to receive more than 9000 points and the first Canadian Olympic decathlon gold medalist. The unofficial title of “world’s greatest athlete” could not be more deserving. What an achievement! What a day! 🇨🇦
On this two year anniversary of their great achievement congratulations once again to our two great Canadian Olympians Alexander Kopacz and Justin Kripps.
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. 🇨🇦
