THE formidable Canada squad is complete.

Fans finally saw a glimpse of Tristan Thompson after the Cleveland Cavs forward arrived in the country later than the rest of the squad for the Olympic Qualifiers.

The Canadian star, who slipped into the country on Saturday morning, joined practice on Sunday afternoon but has largely kept a low profile.

Thompson declined to grant a short interview to, instead giving just a "peace" sign before obliging to photo requests.
