TORONTO – The Canadian Olympic Committee congratulates Canadian sport leader, Robert (Bob) Storey, on being honoured with the Olympic Order: the supreme award presented to individuals by the International Olympic Committee.
On November 14th IOC President Jacques Rogge presented Robert Storey with the Olympic Order at Lausanne, Switzerland.

“This honour is a testament to an incredible career,” said Canadian Olympic Committee President Marcel Aubut. “But more importantly, it is a testament to a steadfast commitment to the Olympic movement. Mr. Storey has put an example in place the entire sport community can admire and strive for.”

In the presentation Dr. Rogge acknowledged Mr. Storey’s distinguished career as an Olympic athlete, service as President of National and International Sport Federations, his work on IOC Committees and the Canadian Olympic Committee during his 45 years of commitment to sport.
A native of Collingwood, ON, Mr. Storey competed for Canada at two Olympic Games and represented his country as a coach at a third.
