WOA Ticket Programme keeps Olympians connected
11 | 2 | 2018
World Olympians Association has kicked off its Olympian Ticketing Programme at PyeongChang 2018 with an initial allocation of more than 200 tickets to Games events. The popular initiative allows Olympians attending the Games to watch sporting events for free in recognition of their important role within the Olympic Movement.
First in line for tickets was Canada’s Maxime Dufour-Lapointe OLY who can’t wait to watch her sisters Justine and Chloe compete in the moguls competition on 11 February.
Maxime, Justine and Chloe made history at Sochi 2014, becoming only the fifth set of three siblings to have competed at the same event at the Winter Games.
Ensuring Olympians maintain a prominent position at the heart of the Olympic Games and retain an ongoing connection to the wider Olympic Movement is a core mission of WOA. The WOA Olympian Ticketing programme has been run since Sochi 2014 and continues to prove a big hit.
Other Olympians to collect tickets so far include Team Canada Athlete Mentor Julien Bahain OLY (rowing), who is in PyeongChang to provide support and guidance to competing Canadian athletes, and USA Olympian Tamara Jenkins (canoeing), who is working for the Olympic Channel during the Games.
They will join more than 100 other Olympians who will get to enjoy PyeongChang 2018 sporting action for free as part of the initial allocation of tickets. As more tickets become available many more Olympians will be able to take advantage of this great benefit.
