Justin Bieber supports Canada at Special Olympics

Justin Bieber helped boost team morale as he cheered on his native Canada before the team kicked off competition at the 2015 Special Olympics World Games on Saturday (25Jul15).

The Baby hitmaker was on hand for the Opening Ceremony at the Los Angeles Coliseum in California, and met with the representatives from Canada as they prepared to take the field for the first time.


He shared a video on Twitter.com of himself chanting, "Let's go Canada!" with the athletes, as he attempted to pump them up for the next nine days of competition.


TV personality Maria Menounos also shared a backstage photo on Instagram.com, featuring her alongside Bieber, his Australian singer pal Cody Simpson, and Maria Shriver, whose mother Eunice Kennedy Shriver founded the Special Olympics.


Menounos added the caption, "Justin gave me a sneak peak of his new single-so cool! he even sang along which was even more cool!"
