Even with all eyes drawn to South Korea’s Pyeongchang for the 2018 Winter Olympics, there are still a few sights closer to home that are putting on quite the spectacle of their own.
It may be no gold medal performance, but Canada’s Olympic venues have shone this February to celebrate our nation’s athletes, be it through lights, flames, or a beautiful mix of both.
Only three Canadian cities have played host to the biggest sporting event in the world, with Montreal hosting the Winter Games in 1976, Calgary in 1988, and Vancouver in 2010.
Each city created beautiful venues to house these feats of athleticism, and many of these buildings, monuments, and structures are still standing today.
Here are our favourite photos of Canadian Olympic pride at work.
