Ayim Opens Games As Canadian Flag Bearer
Hundreds of Canadian athletes walked into the Olympic stadium in Tokyo, Japan for the opening ceremonies of the Games.
Leading them in was Chatham’s Miranda Ayim, one of two flag bearers for Canada.
Ayim, who spent the first several years of her life living in Chatham before moving to London, will represent Team Canada’s women’s basketball team at the Games.
One of her teammates is Chatham’s Bridget Carleton.
Ayim played professionally this season in France, and will retire from basketball following the Olympics.
