The Olympic Journey of Canada’s Flag Bearer Rosie MacLennan

As a child, Rosie MacLennan often tagged along to her older siblings’ trampoline lessons aching for her chance to shine. And shine she did. By the age of just 17, she was already the Canadian National Women’s Champion, a feat she repeated two more times. The current reigning Olympic champion in the individual trampoline event as well as the reigning Pan American Games champion in the individual event, Rosie speaks with passion about dreaming like a champion as well as on body image and health. She is also available for performances. Tonight, Rosie will walk with pride during the opening ceremonies in Rio as Canada’s Olympic flag bearer. The Globe and Mail takes a look at her journey so far, here.
