Well, I guess for me the only good thing about the Olympics is trying to figure out who will light the torch at the very end. Right now I am pretty sure it will be one of these people, none of whom have been torch runners during the journey to the opening ceremonies.
1) Wayne Gretzky
Well, I always thought Lemieux was the better player, but if you think Canada, you think hockey. And when you think hockey, I guess Gretzky comes to mind. It would make a lot of sense.
2) Rick Hansen
I remember his "Man in Motion" tour from years past. He has been a great ambassador to athletes all over the world.
3) Betty Fox
Of course we know her better as the mother of the most inspirational runner of all time, one Terry Fox.
4) Michael J. Fox
He's not an athlete, but he's Canadian.
