There are plenty of songs we associate with winning the big match. But from "Eye of the Tiger" to "We Are the Champions," they're getting a little long in the tooth – and they aren't Canadian.
We want to find out what today's song of champions should be for our Canadian athletes, so send us your suggestion for a "champthem." We'll collect the nominees and pit them against each other in a winner-takes-all tournament, where you vote to decide the ultimate championship anthem.
There are four ways to nominate your favourite song:
1. You can share it with us in the comments below.
2. Post it on our Facebook page.
3. Tweet us your nominations with the hashtag #champthem.
4. Add your suggestions to our playlist on Rdio.
Listen To help get you inspired, have a listen to our Champion Anthem playlist on CBC Music.
We'll compile all of the nominations, and put it to a vote beginning this Friday, July 27, 2012.
What song should be Canada's new championship anthem? Let us know in the comments.
