Unfortunately with a single stream, CBC is not in control of what is shown on the livestream so we are not guaranteed to see our Canadian athletes. The good thing about it though is that it is simple. Start the livestream and keep an eye on what is being shown. It's been great to see sports that we are not always exposed to like netball, field hockey or squash.

The one hour midnight show highlights Canada's best performances of the day as well as the more popular events.
