CHEF DE MISSION – BRUNY SURIN

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Canada’s athletics team will have a familiar face at the helm of Team Canada as its Chef de Mission in four-time Olympian Bruny Surin. Well known for his success at Atlanta 1996, Surin ran the third leg of the 4×100-metre relay final to become the first team to defeat the United States for the Olympic gold medal. Their time, 37.69 seconds, stood as a national record for 20 years. Today Surin is an advocate for youth in sport and a valued motivational speaker who has accepted the honour to lead Team Canada as Chef de Mission at Buenos Aires 2018.

“It is such an honour to be Team Canada’s chef de mission for the Buenos Aires 2018 Youth Olympic Games. The opportunity to compete at the Olympics changed my life, and I have no doubt that the ability to take part at the Youth Olympic Games will do the same for the young athletes taking part. I am so excited to help them reach their potential.” – Bruny Surin
