Jared Connaughton isn’t a hero because he went in front of a camera and apologized for stepping on a line. He’s a hero because he is the team captain of Canada’s 4x100m relay team who were, medal or no medal, the third fastest relay team in the final heat. He’s a hero because Gavin Smellie, Oluseyi Smith, and Justyn Warner are heroes. They’re heroes because they brought us out of our seats and made us even more proud — if that’s possible — to be Canadian. They were at that moment and that’s how they should stand in our memory.
