#OlympicBuzz : When Olympians celebrate

By Marie-Eve Leclerc

Our Olympians traveled across the country this week for Celebration of Excellence, inspiring and celebrating these amazing moments we all remember from Sochi 2014. Their experience was shared with us via social media, here’s a recap:

Our athletes inspired thousands of young fans by visiting different schools and hospitals across the country:
