Opening Blog

Greetings to all of you!

Our small OTP staff, inundated with requests for information about the performance of the Canadian teams and what to expect at the Games, have decided that I should start a blog, and update it regularly through the Games!  So, I will do my best to regularly provide interesting information and insight that might not be readily available via the traditional media to those of you interested in news from the ‘new media’.

We also have an OTP website that contains lots of information, so be sure to visit it.

Our hope is that you will learn a lot about the Own The Podium 2010 project and all the efforts behind the scene as our 16 Olympic and Paralympic sport disciplines prepared over the past five years for this moment.  We will welcome your comments and questions.

Today Own the Podium is holding a Media Teleconference at 10:30am MTN to discuss if Canada is ready? With just 10 days to go until the Opening Ceremonies of the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, I will briefly look back at the evolution of Canadian athlete results since Own the Podium was launched five years ago and focus on performance expectations heading into the games.
