We are very proud to announce, as part of our ongoing partnership with Donovan Bailey, that he has come onboard as an official Olympia Ambassador. Mr. Bailey is one of Canada’s most iconic sports figures: a two-time hall-of-famer, five-time world and Olympic champion, and a member of Canada’s Walk of Fame. He’s also a former camper and firm believer in the magic of Olympia.
Our partnership began in 2019 when Mr. Bailey joined us for our Week 3 Athletic Conditioning Camp and our Week 8 Strength Training Camp. We are thrilled to have him join us again this coming year for our NEW Donovan Bailey Strength and Power Program.
This program is designed to help campers excel, whatever their sport or activity may be. Mr. Bailey will develop campers’ fundamental movement skills, helping them run faster, jump higher, and become stronger, more agile, and more balanced.
A word from Mr. Bailey:
"The Olympia Basketball program taught me the importance of being a competitor. Learning even a small amount of the concepts of the Hero’s Journey was part of igniting the passion within me, to see a path to success to become a leader of my generation.
Dave Grace has spent many years building one of the best places for kids/sports and certainly preparing our future leaders for tomorrow. In June of 2019, I signed on and am committed to Olympia Sports Camp as not only an ambassador, but to assist in all levels when possible to make Olympia Sports Camp ‘The Bollettieri Academy’ of the North for ALL SPORTS. We have five years to get this done and I am very excited.”
Needless to say, the excitement is mutual. We are so grateful to have Mr. Bailey on our team, and are looking forward to continuing to build Olympia’s legacy together.
