TORONTO – Today, the Canadian Olympic Committee issued the following statement of thanks to RBC on the naming of 47 world-class Canadian athletes added to their RBC Olympians program from 2013 through 2015.“Canada’s Olympic and Paralympic athletes are some of our country’s greatest assets and they are proof that the power of sport can improve our society, inspire and bring Canadians together. Our athletes embody the true spirit of sport and Canada—though they may compete in individual events, they come together as a team and rally an entire country behind their efforts. On behalf of the Canadian Olympic Committee, I want to thank RBC and its leadership for being the first and longest-standing sponsor of Canada’s Olympic Movement.”
