Triathlon[edit]

After ending the second phase of the triathlon in twenty-fourth place following a crash in the cycling portion of the event, Canada's only male triathlete at the first Olympic triathlon, Simon Whitfield, had by far the best run of any athlete present. He passed all twenty-three competitors that had been in front of him and finished over 13.5 seconds before the next triathlete to claim the gold medal. Canada's women did not fare so well, with two of them placing in the 30s and the third not finishing.

Death of Pierre Trudeau[edit]

Near the end of the Summer Olympics, on 28 September, Canadian athletes learned that former prime minister (from 1968 to 1984), Pierre Trudeau, had died. Owing to time difference, it was 29 September in Sydney.

Juan Antonio Samaranch, presiding over his last Olympics as IOC president, ordered the Canadian flag at athletes' village lowered to half-staff on orders from Canadian Foreign Affairs Minister Lloyd Axworthy. As the flag was lowered, Canadian athletes paid tribute to Trudeau During medal ceremonies, whenever the Canadian flag flew, it was flown at half-mast, also on orders from Samaranch and Axworthy. They both ordered the Canadian flag flown at half-staff for the remainder of the Olympics, as the state funeral didn't take place until 3 October.

Official Outfitter[edit]

  • Roots Canada was the official outfitter of clothing for members of the Canadian Olympic team. The same clothing was also sold at Roots stores in Canada.
