Soccer captain Christine Sinclair named Canadian flag-bearer
Christine Sinclair will carry Canada's flag at the closing ceremony of the London Olympics.
Sinclair was chosen by the Canadian Olympic Committee after leading the women's soccer team to a bronze medal. It was the first medal for Canada in a traditional Summer Games team sport since 1936.
Sinclair was the popular choice after scoring an Olympic-record six goals in the women's tournament.
The Burnaby, B.C. native scored three goals during an emotional 4-3 semifinal loss to the United States.
Sinclair previously carried the flag during the opening ceremonies of the Pan American Games last fall in Mexico.
