Athlete Brought Maple Syrup To The Olympics & It's The Most Quebecois Thing Ever

Imagine you're a Canadian athlete heading to Tokyo for the Olympic Games. What would you pack in your bag? Underwear? Check. Condoms? Check. Maple syrup? Huh?

That's exactly what Quebecois cyclist Hugo Houle did. In a genius move, Houle packed his favourite Quebecois maple syrup for the Olympics and we honestly love his decision.

In a story posted on Houle's Instagram page, you can see an iconic can of pure maple syrup made in Quebec that he says will be shared with his teammates, and it's probably going to be a hit at the breakfast table.

Considering the contents of the Olympic breakfast spread, the athletes are going to need a whole lot of maple syrup to make Tokyo feel like home for the next weeks.
