The Toronto Star is reporting that native Winnipegger, Clara Hughes, will have the honour of leading Team Canada as our official flag bearer.

Clara is the only Canadian to ever have won medals at both the Summer and Winter Olympics in cycling and speedskating. Wow. If it isn’t already an accomplishment to be one of the best in the world in one sport, she is the best in two!

This will be an extraordinary experience since we are the host country this year. Congratulations Clara!!
