Who is Canada’s greatest athlete?
There’s a pretty good chance it’s an Olympian.
Sportsnet.ca listed 16 nominees for its 2013 award. About half have Olympic ties. Given it’s Canada, online voting here will probably favor Stanley Cup winner and 2010 Olympian Jonathan Toews.
Here are other Olympic sports athletes on the list who had stellar years:
Patrick Chan, figure skating — 2013 World champion
Charles Hamelin, short track speed skating — Four-time 2013 World medalist
Rachel Homan, curling — 2013 World bronze medalist
Kaillie Humphries, bobsled — 2013 World champion
Mark McMorris, snowboarding — 2013 Winter X Games champion
Damian Warner, track and field — 2013 World bronze medalist
