CANADIAN OLYMPIC COMMITTEE OPENS SEARCH FOR
INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC ACADEMY YOUNG PARTICIPANTS

TORONTO – The Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) will send one Canadian athlete and one Canadian Olympic fan between the ages of 20 and 35 to Olympia, Greece to experience the annual Young Participants Session at the International Olympic Academy (IOA). The lucky recipients will accompany a COC staff member on the Olympic adventure of a lifetime.

The IOA unites some of the world’s most vibrant young leaders in sport and physical activity from approximately 100 nations. The session will take place from June 15 – 29, 2014 and will focus on Olympic Legacy with a special look at the empowerment of Olympism through youth. This year’s theme will be: “Olympic Values: Respect for Diversity”.

“Applicants must possess an understanding of Olympism and have experience within the Olympic Movement in Canada,” said Chris Overholt, CEO and Secretary General, Canadian Olympic Committee. “Ideal candidates will exhibit leadership, knowledge and enthusiasm for the development of sport and physical activity and will possess a strong online presence.”

Successful applicants will need to demonstrate a proficiency in social media channels and the strength and reach of their social media influence as they will be required to provide social media updates and act as online ambassadors for the promotion of Olympism in Canada.

Future Canadian sport leaders are encouraged to apply online by March 24, 2014 at 5 p.m. EST at http://www.formstack.com/forms/COT-2014_international_olympic_academy_application_form.
