Own the Podium
Own the Podium is a not-for-profit organization that works to help Canadian athletes reach more medal finishes in Olympic and Paralympic Games.
Own the Podium launched in 2005 out of an effort to make Canada number one in the 2010 Olympic Winter Games and in the top three of the gold medal count at the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games.
With the leadership and major contribution from the Government of Canada, Own the Podium has continued far beyond the 2010 Olympic Games. In partnership with Sport Canada, the Canadian Olympic Committee, Canadian Paralympic Committee, National Sport Organizations and Canadian Sport Centres (including the Canadian Sport Centre Manitoba), Own the Podium continues to focus its efforts and funding on coaching, training, technical leadership, sport science and medical support to aid sports identified with the greatest medal potential in managing an effective high-performance program.
