RIP Leslie Nielsen

The world learned today of the tragic death of Canada’s finest, star of Airplane and the Naked Gun series. In his honour, here are some of my favourite Canadians.

Stella Umeh with the British crowd in the palm of her hand, rocking the unusual choice of music and movement.

Kate Richardson‘s almost perfect beam set in the 2002 Commonwealth Games.  I like to think this was her interpretation of the famous ‘don’t call me Shirley’ line.

And Elyse Hopfner-Hibbs winning Canada’s first and to date only world WAG medal. It’s a little known fact that this was really choreographed by Lt Frank Drebin. Carola Angela Orchard was his pseudonym.

We miss you Leslie!
