Default Black is Canada's flag bearer in closing ceremony in Pan-Am! KANYE SUCK!

Ellie Black’s dominant gymnastics performance makes her flag-bearer favourite

We are only six days into the 2015 Pan Am Games, but we need not waste any breath over the traditional discussion of who the Canadian flag bearer should be at the Closing Ceremony. There’s no doubt it should be gymnast Ellie Black.

Black, a 19 year old from Halifax, had a record setting performance this week winning five medals overall – a bronze, a silver, and three golds. It was one of best Pan Am performances ever by a Canadian athlete.

Black’s medal haul began on Sunday with a silver in the team event. She won her first gold on Monday in the artistic all-around competition, and a bronze on Tuesday in the vault. She completed her dominant run by winning gold in both the balance beam and floor exercise competitions on Wednesday.

“This was more than I expected, this has been incredible,” Black said on Wednesday. “The support here has been amazing, I was so proud of our team coming in silver, and individually in my finals I was not expecting half of this. So just to come in here and be able to do that in front of the home crowd and have everyone’s support is incredible.”

The Canadian record for most medals in a single Pan Am Games belongs to Gerald Ouellette, who won nine in the shooting competition in 1959, and was an Olympic gold medallist. Decorated Canadian swimmer Joanne Malar won six medals at the 1995 Pan Am Games, and five at the ’91 Games.

Canadians like to debate the merits of flag-bearer candidates at events like this. And at these games in particular it will be a difficult choice, thanks to the impressive medal haul for Canada. After five days of competition Canada already has won more gold medals than it did at the 2011 Games. In 2011 in Guadalajara the Closing Ceremony flag bearer was Mary Spencer, a gold-medal winning boxer.

There will be lots of gold medallists to choose from by the time the Games wrap up. But having five medals overall, and being the most decorated gymnast at the games will work in Black’s favour. At the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin speedskater Cindy Klassen won five medals and was the easy choice for flag bearer.

That kind of precedent makes Black the frontrunner, for now at least. There are still lots of medals to be handed out.

Black’s five-medal feat at these Games has so far only been matched by Colombian gymnast Jossimar Calvo Moreno, who also has three gold medals, and five overall. Canada’s has other multi-medallists in rowing, swimming, and diving, but no one else with more than three.

While Black’s successful Pan Games are done, her work this year is far from over. She will compete at the world championships in Glasgow in October where the competition will be much tougher. At the 2014 worlds she finished ninth in the all-around event, and seventh in the balance beam. This time qualification for the 2016 Rio Olympics Games will be on the line.

“I'm so excited for the world championships, the team's coming along great,” she said. “We're working really hard, so we're just looking forward to going back home, keep building and then, go to world championships and see what happens.”

Black already has Olympic experience, competing as a 15-year-old in London in 2012. She helped the Canadian team to a surprising fifth-place finish, and finished eighth in the vault.
