Canadian Olympians cheer on the Blue Jays

Blue Jays fever is high and Canada's Olympians have caught it along with the rest of the country. Here we see how they are cheering on the boys in blue.

A team we can all get behind

Olympians are used to competing with Canada behind them, but now that the Blue Jays are being billed as Canada's Team, they are returning the favour.

Team Canada is used to wearing red and white, but Blue Jays fever has these Olympians in royal blue.

We checked up on these fine athletes to see just how they were cheering on the Jays in their first post-season game in 22 years. 

Winter Olympian Gilmore Junio is watching from the comfort of his own home, with the staple baseball meal.

While hurdler Phylicia George had tickets to the game.

As did two-time Olympian on the Women's National Soccer team Karina Leblanc. Looks like she had some pretty good seats. 

Vancouver 2010 snowboarder and CBC correspondent Caroline Calve took in the game with a whole bunch of Torontonians at Nathan Phillips Square.

Sprint kayaker and Torontonian Adam van Koeverden can barely contain his excitement.

While wheelchair tennis Paralympian Joel Dembe couldn't contain his emotion.

Summer Olympian Brittany Maclean has to use her time management skills, honed in the pool, to cheer for her two teams. 

But we think she's okay with it.

National Sport Organizations

These organizations spoke on behalf of their members.

It's Thursday after all, may as well include a #TBT.

And the final word, or song, goes to these future Olympians!
