2018 Olympic outfits for Team Canada

Share

The 2018 Winter Olympics are taking place in Korea for the first time. PyeongChang will host the events, and Canadian Olympians and Paralympians will be identifiable in the red and black with white details, like the word ‘CANADA’ on their outfits.

On the back of the parka is a large white Maple Leaf.

The line was unveiled today in Toronto at the Eaton Centre.

The wardrobe looks very familiar: it’s the kind of winter-wear many Canadians are getting ready these days, scarves and mittens, hats and gloves.

Hudson’s Bay iis the legendary Canadian company that dates back to the early days of the fur trade. It was established in 1670.,

The company has produced the outfits for Team Canada for the previous Olympic Games, beginning in Turin 2006.

And it was the company that first outfitted the team at the 1936 Olympic Winter Games in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Then again during the sixties, at the 19601964 and 1968 Olympic Winter Games.

Kelsey Serwa said today, some of the pieces felt as good as they looked, as she modelled a jacket and baseball style hat.

For the opening ceremony, the Canadian team will be dressed in the parka that falls to mid-thigh in length, and features “Canada” in white letters, across the chest.

On the back of the parka is a large white Maple Leaf.

During the closing ceremonies the Canadian athletes will march into the Pyeongchang Olympic Stadium in red and black softshell jackets.

Fans across Canada can get in on the look of their favourite Canadian Olympians.

Official Team Canada replica wear will be available for purchase at all Hudson’s Bay locations across Canada during October and online at thebay.com/teamcanada.

This includes the latest incarnation of the iconic Red Mittens. Sales of these over the years have raised more than $30 million (Cdn) for our athletes.

These are the ninth edition of the mittens, and they’ll retail for $15, with $3.90 from each pair going to the Canadian Olympic Foundation.

Netiquette »

When you express your personal opinion in an online forum, you must be as courteous as if you were speaking with someone face-to-face. Insults and personal attacks will not be tolerated. To disagree with an opinion, an idea or an event is one thing, but to show disrespect for other people is quite another. Great minds don’t always think alike—and that’s precisely what makes online dialogue so interesting and valuable.

Netiquette is the set of rules of conduct governing how you should behave when communicating via the Internet. Before you post a message to a blog or forum, it’s important to read and understand these rules. Otherwise, you may be banned from posting.

  1. RCInet.ca’s online forums are not anonymous. Users must register, and give their full name and place of residence, which are displayed alongside each of their comments. RCInet.ca reserves the right not to publish comments if there is any doubt as to the identity of their author.
  2. Assuming the identity of another person with intent to mislead or cause harm is a serious infraction that may result in the offender being banned.
  3. RCInet.ca’s online forums are open to everyone, without regard to age, ethnic origin, religion, gender or sexual orientation.
  4. Comments that are defamatory, hateful, racist, xenophobic, sexist, or that disparage an ethnic origin, religious affiliation or age group will not be published.
  5. In online speak, writing in ALL CAPS is considered yelling, and may be interpreted as aggressive behaviour, which is unpleasant for the people reading. Any message containing one or more words in all caps (except for initialisms and acronyms) will be rejected, as will any message containing one or more words in bold, italic or underlined characters.
  6. Use of vulgar, obscene or objectionable language is prohibited. Forums are public places and your comments could offend some users. People who use inappropriate language will be banned.
  7. Mutual respect is essential among users. Insulting, threatening or harassing another user is prohibited. You can express your disagreement with an idea without attacking anyone.
  8. Exchanging arguments and opposing views is a key component of healthy debate, but it should not turn into a dialogue or private discussion between two users who address each other without regard for the other participants. Messages of this type will not be posted.
  9. Radio Canada International publishes contents in five languages. The language used in the forums has to be the same as the contents we publish. The usage of other languages, with the exception of some words, is forbidden. Messages that are off-topic will not be published.
  10. Making repetitive posts disrupts the flow of discussions and will not be tolerated.
  11. Adding images or any other type of file to comments is forbidden. Including hyperlinks to other websites is allowed, as long as they comply with netiquette. Radio Canada International  is in no way responsible for the content of such sites, however.
  12. Copying and pasting text written by someone else, even if you credit the author, is unacceptable if that text makes up the majority of your comment.
  13. Posting any type of advertising or call to action, in any form, to Radio Canada International  forums is prohibited.
  14. All comments and other types of content are moderated before publication. Radio Canada International  reserves the right to refuse any comment for publication.
