Canada’s Flagbearer Chosen for 2012 Olympics

Two-time Olympic medalist and triathlete Simon Whitfield has been chosen as Canada’s flagbearer for the 2012 London Olympics.

Whitfield won his first gold medal in Sydney and won a silver in Beijing.

This proves to be perfect timing for the Kingston, Ont.- born athlete as rumours are flying that the 37-year-old may retire after these Olympic games.
