    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.
