Canada’s Flag Bearer

Kim Boutin from Sherbrooke, QC will be Canada’s flag bearer for the ceremonies.

In her first Olympic games ever, this inspiring 23-year-old speed skater won the bronze medal in the women’s 1500-meters and 500-meters, and silver in the 1,000.

Boutin received harsh comments and abusive threats from angry Korean fans on social media, after Choi Min-Jeong was disqualified from the 500-meter race, moving her up to third place.

But the Canadian athlete handled the situation with poise, coming back even stronger and claiming a spot on the podium once again later that week.
