Description

Canada first appeared officially at the 1904 Olympic Games in St. Louis. However, in 1900, four Canadian citizens competed in track & field athletics, titularly under U.S. colors. Since 1900, Canada has failed to be represented only at the 1980 Moscow Olympic Games. It has appeared at every Olympic Winter Games since their inception in 1924, and, in addition, its ice hockey team competed in the 1920 hockey tournament, winning decisively. This began a trend that continued until the Soviet Union entered the Olympic ice hockey tournaments, starting in 1956. Canada has won 475 Olympic medals (126 gold), 305 of them at the Olympic Games (64 gold) and 170 at the Olympic Winter Games (62 gold). Two female speedskaters lead Canada’s medalists with six – Clara Hughes and Cindy Klassen. Three female Canadian ice hockey players have won four gold medals, Jayna Hefford, Hayley Wickenheiser, and Caroline Ouellette, whose team won from 2002-2014.

Canada has also hosted the Games of the XXIst Olympiad at Montréal in 1976, the 15th Olympic Winter Games at Calgary in 1988, and the 21st Olympic Winter Games at Vancouver in 2010.
