When Canada’s national women’s soccer team defeated Sweden for Olympic gold last month, more than four million Canadians were glued to the dramatic game. Among them was Marina Peres Labelle, 12, who is part of Pointe-Claire, Que.’s soccer program.
She and some of her teammates would have liked to have been wearing a team jersey in their size to show support — but their hunt proved fruitless.
“We couldn’t find any women’s jerseys and we were pretty disappointed because they had a bunch of men’s jerseys,” said Marina. “So we thought that was really unfair.”
