Canada’s Got Game! is a special display of objects marking the Canadian Museum of History’s acquisition of the Order of Sport Collection from Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame. The objects chosen for display are from the Order of Sport Collection and from the Canadian Museum of History’s own collection.
Celebrating sport through three themes — Dynamic Winners, Controversy, and Challenging Expectations — visitors can explore objects from some of Canada’s iconic sports personalities, including Jean-Luc Brassard’s ski suit worn in the World Cup competition, Charmaine Hooper’s jersey worn during the 1999 FIFA World Cup, Brent Lakatos’s wheelchair-racing gloves, Jarome Iginla’s hockey skates, Clara Hughes’s road-racing bicycle, and Irene Crowchild’s buffalo necklace.
The display presents interpretative panels and nine display cases with objects that reflect a diverse range of sports and Canadian athletes over time.
