The Canadian Olympic Medal Tree

Olympic medal tree Over the years, Canadian Olympic Athletes have made us Canadians┬ávery proud. One Ottawa man has a unique and interesting way to show his pride in Canada’s athletes by adding medals to his front yard tree. Bob, the creative person behind this idea, told me that he has been doing this for the past 30 years.

People stop to take photos, chat with me and sometimes sit in their car counting the medals. I often decorate my little tree for special holidays or events. “It makes me happy to honour our athletes,” he said with a smile.

Hats off to you, Bob!
