Life on the road for international Canadian athletes just got better.
On Thursday, as Speed Skating Canada announced its nominees for the Sochi 2014 Games, one of the largest hotel chains in the world also joined the Canadian Olympic Team: Hilton HHonors.
For first-time Olympian Travis Gerrits, the four-year partnership comes as welcome news.
“As athletes, we all travel a lot to compete, and knowing that Hilton Worldwide is there to provide their hospitality to the athletes and our families allows us to focus on our sport.”
