Remembering Gord Downie: Watch our Olympic montages set to Tragically Hip songs

Canadian icon's music provided the soundtrack for memorable moments

Most Canadian sporting events in Canada would be incomplete without hearing the unmistakable sound of Gord Downie's voice over the loudspeakers.

The Tragically Hip frontman died Tuesday after battling brain cancer, and his legacy as a musician is being fondly remembered by fans and athletes alike.

As Canadians celebrate Downie's life and accomplishments, here are CBC Sports' video montages from recent Olympic Games that were set to some of the Hip's most memorable songs.

As a bonus, here's a Hockey Night in Canada intro from the 2014 NHL playoffs that features the Boston Bruins — Downie's favourite team — and the classic song Nautical Disaster.
