This Is What The Tokyo Olympic Village Looks Like, According To Quebec Athletes (PHOTOS)

Their snapshots are making us emotional.

Tokyo 2020: Team Canada Photos Of The Olympic Village

Team Canada's athletes — particularly its female Olympians — have been kicking butt at the 2020 Olympics while living it up in Tokyo's Olympic Village since the start of the Games on July 23, and they've been giving us all a glimpse of their experience on social media.

Canada's Olympians have explored Tokyo's scenery, spent long hours in the Village's sports complexes and have represented Canada on a global scale, earning two gold medals so far.

Rimouski's Maude Charron, a weightlifter who won one of Canada's two Olympic golds, brought a little slice of home to her Olympic Village room.

Rachel Leblanc-Bazinet and Tali Darsigny, both weightlifters from Quebec, posed in the Olympic Village on the first day of the Games.

In a July 20 Instagram post, Montreal fencer Gabriella Page thanked Numazu, the Japanese city that hosted Team Canada's fencing team before the start of the Olympic Games.

After arriving in Tokyo, fellow Montreal fencer Maximilien Van Haaster explored the architecture of Tokyo's Olympic Village, bringing his Instagram followers along the way. Meanwhile, Montreal-based sailer Oliver Bone gave his followers a behind-the-scenes look at his boat's preparation for the Olympic Games.

Though he's not from Quebec — let alone Canadian — Team USA rugby player Cody Melphy made a TikTok of the Olympic Village that's too good not to share.

Go Team Canada!
