If there is one Canadian Summer Olympian I have ever looked up to the most in my entire life it would be triathlete, Simon Whitfield. He was my inspiration after his silver medal win at Beijing 2008 Games to push and strive for more as I represented Team Canada in the 2009 Maccabiah Games Triathlon in Israel. Since his Gold medal in Sydney 2000 he has inspired all Triathletes in the country to make it big! Although my dreams ended short, @SimonWhitfield‘s is not over! He lead the entire country into the stadium on July 27th during the opening ceremonies carrying the flag for Canada and will undoubtably strike the podium one last time during his final Olympics on Race day, August the 7th! Simon, count me in on being in front of my television with Canadian flag screaming GO GO GO!! Everyone be sure to follow him and send him you’re good luck’s, love, and support via Twitter and don’t forget to hashtag #OlympicHeroes! Learn more about @SimonWhitfield by watching the video below!
