Statement by the Prime Minister on the closing of 2018 Winter Olympics
“Our athletes’ achievements are a testament to the effort, sacrifice, and perseverance it took to make it to the Olympics – and behind every athlete stand coaches, families, friends, and communities. Their strong support over the years has helped our Canadian athletes to shine and represent us all with passion and pride on the world stage.
“I also salute the athletes from around the world on their remarkable achievements and extend my heartfelt thanks to South Korea for organizing such successful games. We look forward to the upcoming PyeongChang 2018 Paralympic Winter Games, where sport, athletes, and their stories will once again bring us all together.
“On behalf of all Canadians, I congratulate all our Olympic athletes. You represent the best of Canada’s diversity and strength, and your achievements will inspire us for generations to come. Team Canada, you make us proud.”
