According to the Toronto Star 37 year old Winnipeg native Clara Hughes will be the flag bearer for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. The official announcement will not be made until later today. So if we are wrong, you can hurl slurs at us, if you so choose to do so. The official announcement is today at 2:30pm PST.
The 37-year-old native Winnipegger, the only Canadian to ever have won medals at both the Summer and Winter Olympics — in cycling and speedskating — is also an active humanitarian who wrote a cheque for $10,000 for the Right to Play charity after winning gold in Turin. [source]
