INS Québec, partner of Quebec athletes and coaches attending the Pyeongchang Olympic Games

Montreal, February 6, 2018 – The Institut national du sport du Québec (INS Québec) team is proud to have supported Quebec athletes and coaches from six different sports in their preparation for the Pyeongchang Olympics. Thanks to its sports medicine, sports science, coach training and athlete wellness experts, Quebec athletes and coaches were able to benefit from state-of-the-art performance services as well as the latest scientific and technological breakthroughs in order to maximize their talent and efforts on their way to the Games.

 

A true performance partner of the short track speed skating team, our integrated support team has worked relentlessly throughout the last Olympic cycle. In collaboration with coaches and support staff, our experts in exercise physiology, performance analysis, physiotherapy, strength and conditioning, sports nutrition and sports medicine coordinated their interventions to ensure the best monitoring possible of all aspects related to athlete performance.

 

Our strength and conditioning experts are also proud of the work they have done with women’s hockey athletes including Olympic Team Captain Marie-Philip Poulin and figure skating pair Julianne Séguin and Charlie Bilodeau who benefited from their scientific and sports medicine expertise on their way to their Olympic participation.

 

Thanks to INS Québec’s network of eight regional multi-sport training centres and 17 single-sport training centres, Quebec athletes also accessed essential services to the pursuit of excellence in their area of residence.
