Canadian track and field stars back to reality (and social media)
Athletes post about coming home after world championships
What would you do after coming home from nine days of competition in Beijing?
Hibernate for a week? Reward yourself with junk food and take-out? Watch Netflix for 80 hours straight?
Canadian athletes are slowly heading home after the world track and field championships and, thanks to their Twitter and Instagram accounts, we can see how they're recovering post-worlds.
Some athletes are taking advantage of being in China.

One could only imagine the jet lag these athletes must be dealing with.

Now that the worlds are done, athletes can start knocking things off their to-do lists #LongTrackSeasonProblems
And they wouldn't be elite athletes if they weren't looking forward.
China was a great experience. I'm looking forward to Rio next year but for now I will enjoy the down time!😴—@De6rasse
