They also highlight the achievements of our awesome Canadian athletes,” said Canadian Olympic Committee Chief Marketing Officer Derek Kent. “There is no better way to celebrate this than by bringing the best club teams from across Canada together and, at the same time, the best international men’s teams for the World League.”
