      More than 10,000 young skiers will be wearing toques next season featuring a drawing by an artist from Thunder Bay, Ont.

      Nine-year-old Fenn Dobson has won Cross Country Canada's Jackrabbit toque competition with a drawing of a beaver on skis carrying an Olympic torch.

      "I just knew it represents Canada so I just drew it," Dobson told CBC.

      Cross Country Canada asked entrants to draw an Olympic-themed picture for the 2018 Olympic season, a spokesperson said.

      The organization includes the toques in enrolment kits for its Jackrabbit and Bunnyrabbit skill development programs for children.
