Canadian athletes with experience competing at the BC Winter or BC Summer Games, or for Team BC at the Canada Games played a part in 6 of Team Canada's 24 medals at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games. Eleven of Team Canada's 51 BC Games and Team BC alumni came home with hardware, while many more inspired the nation with memorable performances.
Led by Co-Flag Bearer Nathan Hirayama, 51 BC Games and Team BC alumni set to compete at the Tokyo Olympics are able to attribute their first multisport experience to their developmental years in BC. These athletes and coaches are a living testament of the important role the BC Games and Canada Games play in the athlete development pathway to the highest levels of competition.
Team BC and Canadian Sport Institute Pacific partner on the Team BC Games Prep Program. First announced in March 2020, the revamped progam launches July 5, 2021 with additional services and resources for athletes and coaches preparing for the 2022 Canada Summer Games in Niagara August 6-21.
Team BC is saddened to hear of the passing of one our alumni, Tristan Alexander, and would like to extend our deepest sympathies to his family, friends, and teammates.
