Speed skater Clara Hughes has been chosen to carry Canada's flag at the opening ceremony for the Vancouver Olympics. Hughes has won five Olympic medals and is the only Canadian to participate in the Summer and Winter Olympics. She has won four speed skating medals, including gold in the 5,000 meters in 2006. She also won a bronze medal at the 1996 Summer Olympics in cycling. Hughes is the sixth speed skater to carry Canada's flag.

Streak of the day

Finally, the Phoenix Suns won on TNT. The Suns had lost 18 consecutive games that were televised on TNT until winning 112-106 over Dallas on Thursday night. It was their first victory on the network since the 2008 playoffs. After the game, Suns coach Alvin Gentry joked, "We've never lost on TNT on Thursday night the whole year."
