WHISTLER, B.C. – After years of slumming it, Canada’s Olympic luge team has a chance to move into sport’s high-rent neighbourhood.
An Alberta sponsor has offered a $1-million prize to any Canadian luger who wins a gold medal at the Winter Olympics. That’s huge for us to be offered that sort of thing,” Calgary’s Alex Gough said Tuesday, a few moments after learning about the golden carrot.
Sam Edney said the offer shows the potential of Canada’s luge team.
A year ago we had no title sponsor,” said the Calgary resident, who is considered a threat in the men’s event. Now we’ve got a group of people that believe in us so much they are willing to put that kind of money on the line.”
The cash is being put up by Fast Track Group, a company which bills itself as a financial education specialist. http://slam.canoe.ca/Slam/Olympics/2010Vancouver/News/2010/02/09/12805446-cp.html
