Olympic Athletes in London Show Off Support from Home
At our 2012 Long Course meet in Saint John Swimming New Brunswick asked our athletes attending the meet to sign a “good luck” banner to our Canadian Olympic and Para Olympic Athletes. As you can see from the photo our banner was proudly displayed at the Olympic Village. Pictured are the members of our Olympic team displaying banners from various provinces outside of Canada House in London (SNB banner far left).
“The London Olympics and Paralympics were magical and our athletes made us very proud.London’s motto was “Inspire a generation” and with 3 Olympic medals and 16 Paralympic Medals, we believe that our athletes helped inspire the next generation of Canadians. Congratulations to our 33 Olympians, 24 Paralympians and their coaches! Their performances were accomplished under the toughest swimming conditions ever and within the deepest field of performances ever seen.”
-Pierre Lafontaine, CEO Swimming/Natation Canada.
