The Team Canada Champion Chats live chat took place last week and it was not to be missed! Over 400 schools throughout Canada tuned in live to listen to stories of perseverance, success and failure from world-class athletes and ask them questions live on the chat!

The bi-lingual live chats were hosted by the incredible 9x Paralympian Benoît Huot and 2x Olympian Martha McCabe. They were joined by Olympians who had just returned from Beijing with their stories of the Games, and Paralympians who were in their final preparations.
