Did you watch the Tokyo Olympics? The Summer Games were a year late because of the pandemic, but it was worth the wait. Almost 12,000 athletes from 205 countries came to Japan this summer.
And they came to win.
Canada sent 371 athletes. Swimmers and divers. Rowers and kayakers. Sprinters and bikers, and many more. They came to win, too. Team Canada won a record 24 medals.
It wasn’t easy. The weather was hot and humid. The stadiums were empty. And they were competing against the best athletes in the world.
