All thoughout the Olympic Games you've seen them. They're the Canadian fans out in the stands who happily and loudly cheered on their family, friends, and favourite athletes as they competed for gold, silver and bronze in over 40 events. From soccer matches to swimming heats, they were there to show their support. To those amazing fans, both in Rio and at home, we say...
Thanks Canada, for cheering on our athletes!
