From the track to the slopes and, of course, the ice, Canada has excelled in sport the world over:

* Sprinter Donovan Bailey set the world record in the 100-metre sprint of 9.84 seconds at the 1996 Atlanta Olympics

* In 2002, Catriona Le May-Doan set the world record of 37.30 seconds in the 500-metre speed skating event at the Salt Lake City Olympics

* The most goals scored in one NHL season is 92, a record set by Wayne Gretzky

* The first woman to swim across the English Channel was Canada's Cynthia Nichols, who completed the feat in 19 hours and 55 minutes in 1977

* Rowers Kathleen Heddle and Marnie McBean were the first Canadians to win three Summer Olympic gold medals

* Equestrian rider Ian Millar holds the Canadian record (nine) for the athlete who has participated in the most Olympic Games

* Figure skater Kurt Browning landed the first-ever quad jump in competition; he was also four-time World Champion and four-time Canadian Champion

* Gordie Howe holds the record for the most games played in the NHL, with 1767.

And much more.
