Canada has two national sports: in summer there's lacrosse and in winter there's ice hockey. Lacrosse has Native American origins and is one of Canada's oldest practiced sports. Canadian football, basketball, baseball, curling and soccer are other popular sports in the country.

Canadian football is the second most popular spectator sport, surpassed only by ice hockey which still holds the lead in this department. Canada hosts the Grey Cup – the largest annual sporting event in the country which features Canadian football. Among the sports with high participation are golf, swimming, basketball, ice hockey, volleyball, skiing and cycling. Tennis and baseball are also national favorites, albeit a lot less so than in the States.

Canada's climate led to its being a favorite among the Winter Olympics, hosting the international event in 2010. They've participated in each Olympic event since the practice began, aside from the 1980 boycott of the Olympics at Moscow. A national award called the Lou Marsh Trophy is awarded each year for the best athlete chosen by an exclusive panel of journalists.
