All you need to know about the Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir have been skating together for 20 years. And they will be leading the contingent of Canadian athletes into the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Stadium as the official flag bearers. They’re on fire, these two, having earned a perfect score in the Canadian national championship in January, winning an eighth Canadian ice dance title.

Kids can get a lot out of watching a the 2018 Olympic Winter Games: passion, inspiration, motivation, awe, national pride, and excitement top the list. You can even stage your own mini-games at home.

Our Canadian athletes are participating in every event in South Korea, with the Canadian women’s bobsleigh team qualifying three sleds for the first time ever.

Gracenote, which conducts market research, predicts Canada will collect 33 medals in PyeongChang: 7 gold, 12 silver, and 14 bronze.

Back in the fall, Active for Life got the opportunity to crash a B2ten athlete offsite in Mt. Tremblant, Quebec. We hung out with the athletes, played frisbee with them, and those who weren’t training participated in filming some great physical literacy videos.

In the coming weeks, we’ll be profiling the athletes that we got to know in Tremblant:

We know you’ll be just as inspired by them as we were and will cheer extra hard as you watch them represent Canada in PyeongChang!

Go Canada go!
