Olympic Buzz: Summer Highlights

#OlympicBuzz : Summer Highlights


What’s new with our Olympians? Delve into their fascinating everyday lives through social media. Here’s a recap of 10 favourite posts this week via our Canadian Olympic athletes on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

Week of July 21-28, 2014


1. Brad Jacobs and Caroline Ouellette boost spirits at the RBC Canadian Open event

Olympic gold medals are always inspirational and can outdrive just about any motivational speaker.

2. Summer playground for the cross-country team

Cross-country skier Georgia Simmerling shows us how hard the team has to play before it reaches the finish line.

3. Mission accomplished for Tory Nyhaug.

Props to our Canadian athlete who just won silver at the UCI BMX World Championships!

4. Leap of Faith

Roz Groenewoud did it!!! She was in good hands with her instructor friend and landed safely on the ground…

5. Milos Raonic fits right in at the Blue Jays game

And needless to say, this guy knows a thing or two about hitting a ball…

6. Sébastien Toutant and Maxence Parrot have become regular faces on the #OlympicBuzz.

We just can’t get enough of their action shots… especially this week’s.

7. Reaching for the top is a family affair for Helen Upperton

And there’s nothing like a mountain hike with Dad to prove it.

8. Meanwhile, Vasek Pospisil wins 2nd tournament in a row.

Pospisil and Sock seem to be on a roll ever since they won Wimbledon’s men’s doubles title.

9. Paddles up for the Canadian Women’s Kayak Team

They’re ready for the World Championships!

10. What a pair!

Our selfie of the week is that of Chris Robanske and his dog, enjoying summer in style.
