    At the opening ceremonies?

    He said he had a list of athletes to see how they will preform. Can anybody refresh my memory?

    Since Cindy Klassen is one of the athletes who said that carrying the flag in the opening ceremonies would mess with her training, I would venture that she is on his list.

    1 Gold - 2 Silver - 2 Bronze
    :D

    Becky Scott was the most vocal one, tho.
    1 Silver in team pursuit, I believe.

    Why do so many people take Don Cherry's words in high regard??

    All they did was refuse to carry a piece of material. BIG DEAL!!!!! The best way to represent your country is to bring back the gold baby!! And that's what Klassen and Hughes did. To hell what Cherry and other canadian media types think.

    Well sir, it is a piece of material. I prefer athletes who go out there and bring back the medals for our country, I could care less if they decide not to wave a piece of material.

    Clara Hughes won gold today in perhaps the greatest performance I have ever seen by a Canadian athlete, so I would say she certainly made the correct decision.

    I think carrying the Canadian flag at the opening ceremony is kinda' like the Sports Illustrated cover jinx, since Browning and Orser failed to win gold medals.

    Here's how the last 10 Canadian flag bearers have fared at the Winter Olympics (Source TSN.ca):
    * 2002 Salt Lake City: Catriona Le May Doan, speed skating (won gold)
    * 1998 Nagano: Jean Luc Brassard, freestyle skiing (failed to medal)
    * 1994 Lillehammer: Kurt Browning, figure skating (failed to medal)
    * 1992 Albertville: Sylvie Daigle, speed skating (won gold)
    * 1988 Calgary: Brian Orser, figure skating (won silver)
    * 1984 Sarajevo: Gaetan Boucher, speed skater (won two gold and bronze)
    * 1980 Lake Placid: Ken Read, skiing (failed to medal)
    * 1976 Innsbruck: Dave Irwin, skiing (failed to medal)
    * 1972 Sapporo: Karen Magnussen, figure skating (won silver)
    * 1968 Grenoble: Nancy Greene, skiing (won gold and silver)
