The Rio 2016 Olympics are well on their way. We’re celebrating Canada this week as our inspiring athletes compete in the games, enjoying challenging opponents, some stormy weather, and the outcome of years of devoted effort!

As an armchair athlete, watching the strength and practiced talent of our best swim, dive, row, and throw is a daily jaw-dropper. Like Mr. Mercer says, not just anyone can do this stuff!
