We can't believe it's almost over. The Sochi Olympics are in their final hours and only a few questions remain. One of them is who will carry Canada's flag at the Closing Ceremony on Sunday?

The Canadian Olympic Committee will pick the flag bearer shortly after the end of the men's hockey gold medal game on Sunday. Canada has no shortage of worthy candidates. We list a few of them below. Who do you think should receive the honour?

Kaillie Humphries
Kaillie Humphries and Heather Moyse also defended their gold medal in women's bobsled. Trailing the U.S. after three runs, Humphries and Moyse posted a near-perfect run to clinch the gold. Humphries has also battled back from injury to get back to Olympic form.

Justine Dufour-Lapointe
Heavily-favoured coming into these Games, the Dufour-Lapointe sisters did not disappoint. All three were in the top 10 in women's moguls. Justine would take gold while sister Chloe took silver, setting the tone for Team Canada at the rest of these Games.

Jennifer Jones
One of Canada's most decorated curlers, Jennifer Jones led her team to a perfect tournament on the way to a gold medal in women's curling, Canada's first gold in that sport since 1998.
