Samsung Electronics Canada launched the #BringItHome Campain today which will connect Canadian athletes with supporters at home. Samsung is partnered with five Canadian Olympic athletes who will represent Canada in the coming up 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi.

Samsung Galaxy Team athletes are:
  • Steven Stamkos, Men's Ice Hockey
  • Hayley Wickenheiser, Women's Ice Hockey
  • Greg Westlake, Men's Ice Sledge Hockey
  • Marie-Eve Drolet, Women's Short Track Speed Skating
  • Michael Gilday, Men's Short Track Speed Skating

"The goal of Samsung's Olympic partnership is to heighten national pride from coast-to-coast," said James Politeski, President of Samsung Canada. "We know that the Sochi 2014 Olympic Winter Games will be the most mobile games to date. Fans will be calling, texting, watching and sharing Olympic Games stories on Samsung devices while following the athletes every move; through our Notes From Home program, thousands of personal messages from Canadians will be supporting our athletes as they represent Canada."

"Today is another positive day for sport in Canada," said Marcel Aubut, President of the Canadian Olympic Committee. "It is wonderful that Samsung has committed to sponsoring Steven, Hayley, Greg, Marie-Eve and Michael. This support will go a long way in ensuring our exceptional Canadian athletes continue to pursue their Olympic dreams."

With Team Canada's success in the 2010 Winter Olympic Games on home turf, this program can bring the Canadian spirit to Sochi. Go Canada Go!
