With the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio in our view,  Canada’s Olympic team is busy training.  They are setting their goals on the #RoadtoRio!

Canadian Tire has ALWAYS been a big supporter of our Canadian athletes. In preparation for the Olympic games, Canadian Tire is asking, “How will you and your family get ready for the 2016 Olympics?”

Although we can’t all be cheering on our amazing Canadian athletes in Rio we can still stay fit and have our own Olympic challenges here at home.

You can do anything –  from challenging yourself to try some of the Olympic sports, to setting yourself a personal goal and tracking your improvement.  Even as get creative and make your own backyard  mini Olympics with the family.  There are plenty of ways to take part in the Olympics.

The countdown to the Rio Olympic Games is on!

To help you get in the spirit, and show your support for the athletes, join us this August 5th at 8pm EST for an Olympic Twitter Party hosted by Canadian Tire.
