We'd apologize for winning though, naturally! 🇨🇦
The Tokyo 2020 Olympics are in full swing and this year there is more happening than ever before. Across 17 days there are 339 events in 41 different sports, including new entries like 3x3 basketball, skateboarding and sport climbing.
So far, the performances from Canada's top athletes have been extraordinary and the medals and podium-places just keep rolling in.
However, there are some events that aren't currently in the Olympic Games that could make Team Canada even more successful:
If apologizing was an Olympic event, Canada would take home the gold medal every single time. We'd say sorry to the countries in second and third place for winning though, naturally.
Canadians have been doing their best to steer clear of bears for a long, long time. If dodging them was an Olympic sport, we'd almost certainly make the podium. Russia and the United States could be fierce competition here, though.
After winning a gold medal for apologizing, we'd take the top spot for this politeness-based event too. Athletes would compete to see who can hold a door open for an approaching person the longest. Canada's entries would stand there for the rest of time.
Sweltering? Freezing? Canadians can take it. Watching the athletes stand there and just tolerate different temperatures would probably be a little boring but then again, so is Olympic golf.
Milk bag cutting
Canada would probably have a headstart with this event, given that many people don't even know what milk bags are. However, Canadians in many provinces have been slicing them open since the '60s and '70s, so we must be pretty good at it by now.
Snow pants racing
Yup, we're talking about doing the 100-metre sprint with snow pants on. Athletes from warm climates could never!
Maple syrup canoeing
Ok, it's niche. Although Canada does already have Olympic canoeing teams, they'd probably really come into their own if the water was, well, maple syrup. Canadians just KNOW what to do with maple syrup. We're born knowing what to do with it.
