Default Closing Ceremony Flag Bearer?

Who would everyone's selections be for Closing Ceremony Flag Bearer? Keep in mind that athletes had to leave 48 hours after finishing their competitions so the options are limited. I would select Damian Warner and/or Christine Sinclair.

If Sinclair has not previously, this would be the perfect choice.

She was the flag bearer for 2012.

Warner if he's still around.

Degrasse

Warner is also a good call

Didn’t two athletes carry the flag at the opening?

I think they are doing a man and women. So I'd do Degrasse and Labbe because Sinclair did it already.

If any of them are still there, it'll 100% be one of Andre De Grasse, Damian Warner, Stephanie Labbé or Jessie Fleming.

If not, I'll go with Lauriane Genest (or Kelsey Mitchell if she outdoes Genest's Bronze from the Keirin in the Sprint).

Sinclair or Labbé is the best choice, but Warner is the right choice. The decathlon is the quintessential summer Olympic event.

I would like to see Dunfee get a chance as he embodies what it it is to be an olympian but it is hard to argue the bigger names mention in track and CANWT

Andre all the way. The premiere event at the Olympics and shows up big in every final he’s competed in. Incredible showing this year and is most deserving IMO.

My vote goes to either Andre or Warner. Can't go wrong with either of those choices.
