Who should carry the Canadian flag at the closing ceremonies?
Fri, August 22, 2008

A list of possible Canadian flag-bearer candidates for the Beijing closing ceremonies (in alphabetical order).

Karen Cockburn (trampoline) - Won her third medal at third Games.
Alexandre Despatie (diving) - Earned silver in what has been an injury-played year.
Kyle Hamilton (rowing) - Stroke of gold-medal rowing eight.
Emilie Heymans (diving) - Her silver means she has won medals in three consecutive Olympics.
Carol Huynh (wrestling) - Canada's first gold medallist in Beijing.
Eric Lamaze (equestrian) - A gold medallist and Canada's only double medallist at these Games.
Ian Millar (equestrian) - Celebrated first medal in his ninth Olympics.
Priscilla Lopes-Schliep (hurdles) - Her surprise bronze was Canada's first track medal since '96.

The Canadian Olympic Committee plans to name the flag-bearer Sunday morning Beijing time.

Who do you think deserves to carry the flag?

Definitely Ian Millar & Eric Lamaze both on their horses tandem with the flag between them.

Pony up boys for Canada.

There's a few good choices... Millar, Cockburn, Heymans, Lamaze, Despatie, Van Koeverdan(although he did the opening ceremony). There's plenty of deserving athletes, so you really can't go wrong.

A 36 year mission, the tenacity and drive, determination and ultimate success, epitomizes the never-ending Olympic spirit and means IAN MILLAR.

Ian Millar ... He has represented Canada with class at every event over an illustrious show jumping career. An icon of equestrian in our country.
