With the Olympic Games wrapping up in Sochi, the debate about who should carry the Canadian flag into the Closing Ceremony can begin. Dalton Schultz Cowboys Jersey . Its been a successful Games for Canada, which will finish near the top of the medal standings again. From repeat gold medal winners to multiple medal winners to undefeated teams to acts that define the Olympic spirit, there are many solid candidates who could be considered to receive the honour. Who do you think should carry the flag for Canada on Sunday? Four years ago, Alexandre Bilodeau made history by winning Canadas first Olympic gold medal on home soil. He followed that up by defending his title in moguls this year. He is set to retire at seasons end so this would be a fitting way to honour his accomplishments. Bobsledders Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse also won gold in Vancouver, a first in the womens event, and earned their way back to the top of the podium again in Sochi. Jennifer Jones and her rink from Winnipeg didnt lose a game in womens curling, going 9-0 in the round robin before beating Great Britain and Sweden in the playoffs. Canada has shown well in curling since its inception into the Olympics as an official sport in 1998 but has yet to have a flag bearer from the sport. "Were going to have that little OR — Olympic record — next to our name forever," Jones said after the final game. "Its one of those records that can only be tied and never broken. Well always be remembered." Speed skater Denny Morrison has been the lone Canadian athlete to win multiple medals in individual disciplines, taking the silver in the 1,000m event and bronze in the 1,500m. However, if not for the unselfish act of teammate Gilmore Junio, Morrison may have come up empty in Sochi. Junio stepped aside to let Morrison race the 1,000m event and the move paid off for Canada. Morrison then went on to win his bronze medal but it all started with Junio putting the team before himself. "People talk about it as being a huge sacrifice, but I dont see it that way," Junio said. "It was such an easy decision. It was such a simple decision for me. It was about giving Canada a chance to win a medal." It was actually Morrison who started a campaign on Twitter to have Junio carry the flag. "@cdnhappygilmore for Closing Ceremonies flag bearer! This guy showing everything that is Canadian pride and Olympic Pride. #ThankYouGilmore," Morrison tweeted as the #GilForFlagBearer campaign gained popularity. Along the same lines, theres Justin Wadsworth, the cross-country skiing coach who ran onto the course to help a Russian skier who had broken a ski. "I wanted him to have dignity as he crossed the finish line," Wadsworth said. That is the essence of good sportsmanship. The Dufour-Lapointe sisters captured Canadians attention on the first day of competition with Justine winning the gold and Chloe the silver in moguls skiing. And then theres hockey. Forward Marie-Philip Poulin and goaltender Shannon Szabados were key players in Team Canadas march to gold, especially in Thursdays riveting come-from-behind overtime victory. And what if the mens team were to follow suit on Sunday? Should Sidney Crosby or Carey Price warrant some consideration? There are many great candidates who have stood out among the throng of superb athletes in Sochi these past two weeks. But only one individual can carry the flag. Who do you think should have the honour of carrying Canadas colours into the stadium on Sunday? As always, its Your! Call. Tavon Austin Jersey . Greece was on the wrong end of a 3-0 rout to Colombia in its first game of the tournament. They surrendered a goal in just the sixth minute of the contest, and despite some promising attacking play, failed to crawl back into the match. Japan, on the other hand, struck first in its match with Ivory Coast, with Keisuke Honda putting his side into the lead in the 16th minute. Deonte Thompson Jersey . Ontario Superior Court Case Management Master Ronald Dash released the decision on Monday, saying John McCaw Jr. must testify in front of a jury by live video conference. Moores lawyer, Tim Danson, asked the court to compel McCaw - who is based in Seattle - to testify in the case back on February 27. .  Seriously. Seven years of losing has brought many different faces, players and management, to the annual pre-season get-to-know-the-team round up.ST. CATHARINES, Ont. - Connor McDavid shrugged off the latest sign of progress in his return from a broken bone in his right hand.The junior hockey star has been cleared for contact and has started practising with the rest of his Canadian world junior teammates. That came as no surprise to McDavid, who expected to be at this point in his recovery all along.Its kind of been the plan for a while now, McDavid said. The last checkup was a couple Tuesdays ago, and thats kind of been the plan from Day One was to start contact on this date. Just kind of following the plan.The plan has McDavid on track to be healthy and ready to go when Canada opens the tournament Dec. 26 in Montreal against Slovakia. But shedding the yellow no-contact jersey and getting through a full practice was an important step toward that goal.McDavid did that Monday at Meridian Centre on the first day of Canadas main training camp. Like McDavid, coach Benoit Groulx knew it was coming, and he knew what to look for in the 17-year-olds progress.How did they feel? Do they look confident on the ice when they skate, do they have poise with the puck, do they seem to have chemistry out there? Groulx said. When you look at Connor today, I thought he had all that, and it is good to see that.McDavid reported no problems with his hand, as expected. The Erie Otters star and projected No. 1 pick in next years NHL draft was able to take full slap shots last week.On Nov. 11, McDavid broke the fifth metacarpal in his right hand when it struck the top of the boards during a fight with Bryson Cianfrone of the Mississauga Steelheads. A specialist he saw the next day in Toronto estimated McDavid would miss five to six weeks.The five-week mark is Tuesday, and McDavid still has a few more practices he can go through before worrying about playing in a game. Canada has three international exhibitions: Friday against Russia in Toronto, Sunday against Sweden in Ottawa and Dec. 23 against Switzerland in Montreal.McDavid said hes still hoping to get into one or two of those exhibition games. The only hindrance to that at this point is getting timing back on the ice.Ive been almost bag-skating for three weeks. My legs feel great, the legs arent too much of an issue at all, McDavid said. Obviously still getting the hands back is coming along, getting a little better. The only thing thats going to come is timing. The only way to do that is through competition and through contact and all that. Thats going to take a little time to get back.McDavid appeared to fit in seamlessly in Canadas camp lineup Monday, skating between Nic Petan and Robby Fabbri on the second line. Mike White Cowboys Jersey. Sam Reinhart centred the veteran first line between Max Domi and Anthony Duclair.Groulx liked the chemistry McDavid and Fabbri showed over the summer. Its natural, as McDavid said the two have been playing with or against each other since they were seven or eight years old.Weve known each other a long time, McDavid said. Ive seen him play so many times you get a sense of where hes going to be at, some stuff hes going to do.It was to be expected that teammates would hold back a little from McDavid in his first full practice, though the Newmarket, Ont., native said they dont have to. Groulx didnt see players letting up.At first, I think when they see him, they want to make sure that they dont hit him on his glove, Groulx said. You know its there, so theyve got to be careful. But overall I think guys went pretty hard today.McDavid, who wore a full cage and a white No. 17 jersey, has a few days to test his hand and get into game shape. Groulx said he didnt know if McDavid would play Friday against Russia at Air Canada Centre.Were not there yet, Groulx said. Our focus is to prepare our team, go through our systems, lines, see how it works during practices. We will see how it plays out. We are not building our lineup for Friday yet.One thing Canada found out Monday was that Bo Horvat definitely wont be in its lineup at any point. The Vancouver Canucks announced Horvat would be remaining in the NHL.Bo Horvat has proven he can contribute to the success of the Vancouver Canucks, Canucks GM Jim Benning said. He is a solid two-way player, strong in the faceoff circle and displays a maturity beyond his years. Were very pleased with Bos play and look forward to watching him develop as an NHL player.Horvats absence, and the decreased likelihood that the Ottawa Senators will release Curtis Lazar because of a couple of injuries at forward, is good news for Frederik Gauthier. The Toronto Maple Leafs prospect figures to be Canadas fourth-line centre, though his spot would have been in jeopardy if Horvat or Lazar joined the team.Notes — Groulx said the team received booster shots to protect against the mumps virus, which has spread around the NHL. At least 14 players have been diagnosed with the mumps so far, including Sidney Crosby. ... Forward Michael Dal Colle and defenceman Joe Hicketts each practised Monday. Dal Colle missed Sundays exhibition game because he was a little banged up, Groulx said, and Hicketts was taken out for precautionary reasons after taking a hit from behind into the boards.---Follow @SWhyno on Twitter Cheap Chargers Jerseys Cheap Rams Jersey Cheap Dolphins Jerseys Cheap Vikings Jerseys Cheap Patriots Jersey Cheap Saints Jerseys Cheap New York Giants Jerseys Cheap Jets Jerseys Cheap Raiders Jerseys Cheap Eagles Jerseys Cheap Steelers Jerseys Cheap 49ers Jerseys Cheap Seahawks Jerseys Cheap Buccaneers Jerseys Cheap Titans Jerseys Cheap Redskins Jerseys ' ' '
