TORONTO – The Canadian Olympic Committee congratulated two Canadian sport icons and Olympic legends Friday after Pat Quinn and Daniel Nestor were honoured with the Order of Canada at a ceremony at Rideau Hall.

“These two men have done so much for sport in Canada, but also for Canada itself,” said Canadian Olympic Committee President Marcel Aubut. “They have raised the bar in their respective fields. In doing so, they created Olympic experiences unforgettable moments for Canadians that leave an important legacy for the country.”

Quinn, a Hamilton, ON native, coached the Canadian Olympic Ice Hockey team to a gold medal at the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City. The Serbian-born Nestor is a five-time Olympian and won the gold medal for Canada at the 2000 Games in Sydney.
“These are true leaders in sport and the Canadian Olympic Committee congratulates them wholeheartedly on this tremendous honour,” said Aubut.

The Order of Canada is the centrepiece of Canada’s honours system and recognizes a lifetime of outstanding achievement, dedication to the community and service to the nation. The Order recognizes people in all sectors of Canadian society.
