The Olympic Village Mayor officially welcomed Team Canada and the Canadian flag was raised in the Olympic Village Plaza. Mark Tewksbury, our Chef de Mission, and Sylvie Bernier, our Assistant Chef de Mission, along with a special guest, Moe Clark held a fabulous Pep Rally for the team.

Moe Clark, a Metis spoken word poet and artist performed her piece, "Becoming Hero". This poem was created for, about and inspired by the London 2012 Canadian Olympic Team. It recognizes and presents the incredible accomplishments of our "Canadian Heros" that come from all across Canada, to carry on the legacy that has been created over time, and in so doing, to create new chapters of that legacy.

Please find a link below to a video of her poem:
