Trampoline athlete Rosie MacLennan chosen as Canada's flag bearer
The women's trampoline champion from the London Olympics will lead the Canadian delegation into the Rio Opening Ceremony on Friday, August 4, the Canadian Olympic Committee has announced.
27-year-old Rosie MacLennan will be making her third Olympic appearance in Rio. Four years ago, she was the only Canadian athlete to win gold at the London Olympics. She was also the first North American athlete to win trampoline gold in the sport's Olympic history.
Trampoline was added to the Olympics in 2000.
