Congratulations to Chief Sport Officer for induction into Concordia University Sports Hall of Fame

TORONTO – The Canadian Olympic Committee takes great pride in congratulating its Chief Sport Officer Caroline Assalian for her induction to Concordia University’s Sports Hall of Fame, which takes place Friday in Sherbrooke, QC.

“Carol’s hard work, dedication and passion for sport make her an integral to the success of the Canada’s Olympic movement,” said Canadian Olympic Committee President Marcel Aubut. “Now, in addition to her other outstanding qualities and achievements, we have yet another reason to be proud of what she has accomplished both personally and for the Canadian Olympic Movement.”

Assalian has been a leader in the Canadian sport community and within the Canadian Olympic Committee for more than 20 years, including the 2012 Olympic Games, which marked her 11th Olympic experience with the COC.

In that time she has advanced sport in tangible ways, including Olympic results for this country by helping unify a collective voice across a vast sporting system. She has worked with high-impact corporate partners, Own the Podium and government to help ensure National Sport Federations achieve their performance goals.

Assalian starred on the women’s basketball team at Concordia in the 1980’s and was named an all-star during three of her seasons there.
