This video presents “Becoming Hero / Devenir un Héros”:

  • This video and poem by Moe Clark was created for, about and inspired by the Canadian Olympic athletes
    • This performance is meant to recognize and present the incredible accomplishments of our “Canadian Heros” that come from all across Canada, to carry on the legacy that has been created over time, and in so doing, create new chapters of that legacy
    • It was shown to the Canadian Olympic Team athletes two days before the Opening Ceremonies at the London 2012 Games
  • Cette vidéo du poème de Moe Clark a été créée pour les athlètes olympiques canadiens et a été inspirée par ces derniers
    • Elle a pour but de souligner et de présenter les réalisations incroyables de nos « héros canadiens » qui viennent de partout au Canada pour perpétuer l’héritage qui a été créé avec le temps, et ce faisant, ils écrivent de nouveaux chapitres de l’histoire de cet héritage
    • Elle a été présentée aux athlètes de l’Équipe olympique canadienne deux jours avant la cérémonie d’ouverture des Jeux de Londres 2012
