Most of us will never meet Canada's Prime Min­is­ter Justin Trudeau or even visit the House of Commons. The thought of shak­ing hands with the coun­try's leader and mem­bers of the House is a hum­bling moment, and Canada's Olympic and Par­a­lympic teams were stoked to en­joy such a prodi­gious wel­come home. Trudeau is a cy­clist him­self and is en­gag­ing, like his leg­endary fa­ther – check out his selfie with Par­a­lympian Tris­ten Ch­er­nove and oth­ers on page 70. Team Canada achieved a record 22 Games medals in Rio, Brazil, with cycling con­tribut­ing two bronze, while our Par­a­lympic team earned a record 29 medals, with cycling be­ing the top-per­form­ing sport in Rio with nine medals – see pages 35-41. I call that a full house and then some. Wish­ing ev­ery­one a great off-sea­son.

More than 250 Cana­dian ath­letes and coaches from Canada's Olympic and Par­a­lympic Rio 2016 teams were hosted by Prime Min­is­ter Justin Trudeau and hon­ourable mem­bers of the House of Commons on Nov. 11.
