Athletes supported by INS Québec shine at the PyeongChang Olympic Games

Montreal, February 28, 2018 – The INS Québec team congratulates Quebec athletes on their incredible performance in PyeongChang. We also extend our congratulations to their coaches and to the INS Québec experts who were at Team Canada’s side during the Games.

Of Team Canada’s 29 medals, 12 medals (3 Gold, 5 Silver, 4 Bronze) were won by 14 athletes receiving support from INS Québec. Whether directly at the INS Québec’s Complex or through our network of Regional Multi-Sport Training Centres, these athletes were able to benefit from our expertise during their Olympic preparation—from our sports medicine team (physiotherapy, post-concussion rehabilitation experts, psychology, nutrition…), to our sports sciences team (exercise physiology, biomechanics, mental preparation…), overall wellness support (career guidance, skill development, networking…), and access to an elite environment to foster their best possible athletic performances.
