⚽️Soccer: The CanWNT’s Olympic roster is set, and it’s no surprise that the GOAT Christine Sinclair will lead the team for her fourth Games, alongside 2020 Canadian Player of the Year Kadeisha Buchanan, Jessie Fleming, Quinn, Janine Beckie, Desiree Scott and goalkeepers Stephanie Labbé and Kailen Sheridan (warning: grab a tissue before you click that link).

  • There were a few surprises though: vet Sophie Schmidt and up-and-comer Jordyn Huitema (pronounced HIGH-teh-ma) were included as alternates. 

⛳️Golf: Another weekend, another major. This time, it’s the Women’s PGA Championship, the fourth of five LPGA majors. Reigning champ Sei Young Kim will be back in contention, alongside past winners Brooke Henderson (Canadian!) and Danielle Kang, and 2021 LPGA tour event winners Nelly and Jessica Korda, who are each looking for their first major. Follow along here.

🏀Basketball: Move over, The Last Dance. Michael Jordan made his greatest contribution yet when he announced the Jordan Brand’s “WNBA family” campaign, featuring 11 WNBA players. Representation matters.
