Wheelchair curler Ina Forrest and Para ice hockey player Greg Westlake are set to carry the Canadian flag at the Beijing 2022 Winter Paralympics Opening Ceremony tomorrow.

"Ina and Greg are not only two of Canada’s most successful Paralympians who have reached the absolute pinnacle of their sports, they also both embody the best of Paralympic values and are incredible ambassadors for sport," said the team's Chef de Mission Josh Dueck.

"Carrying the flag is a much-deserved honour for them both and a reflection of their years of dedication and achievements."

Forrest, 59, is set to compete at her fourth Paralympic Games after winning gold in 2010 and 2015 and bronze at the last Games in Pyeongchang.  

"It is a great privilege to be asked to be flagbearer, and it will truly be an honour, a thrill and a responsibility to carry the flag and show the whole world all the great athletes behind me," Forrest said. 

"I remember my first time going into Vancouver 2010 and the feeling you had with the roar of all the Canadian supporters, and I know family and friends and lots of Canadians are watching and supporting us in the same way," she added.

"I hope that all first-time Paralympians have that same feeling at these Games because it’s a tremendous proud-to-be-Canadian moment."

Westlake, 35, has been part of three World Championship-winning squads, and is set for his fifth Winter Games after claiming a full set of Paralympic medals.

"While I am very proud to represent my country and be a member of the Canadian Paralympic team for my fifth Games, I am truly humbled and cannot thank my teammates, coaches and our staff enough, as well as all those who were involved in the selection process for this incredible opportunity," said Westlake.
