Own the Podium 2010

Own the Podium 2010 (OTP) is a sport technical initiative designed to help Canada become the number one nation in terms of medals won at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games, and to place in the top three countries overall at the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games.

The initiative is a collaborative effort supported by all 13 of Canada’s winter National Sport Federations and the major winter sport partners, including Sport Canada, the Canadian Olympic Committee, the Canadian Paralympic Committee and VANOC.

The focus of the initiative is to provide additional resources and high-performance programming to Canadian athletes, coaches and support personnel to help the country’s athletes achieve podium success in 2010.

VANOC committed to raise half of the $110 million required to help achieve the goals of podium success for 2010 through its sponsors, including commitments from the Province of British Columbia, and other provinces and territories participating in the Games through the Contributing Province/Territory Program (CPTP). The Government of Canada committed the remaining $55 million.
