A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed by the Australian Olympic Committee President John Coates and the Canadian Olympic Committee President Marcel Aubut in Lausanne on June 15.

The Australian and Canadian Olympic committees have signed an agreement that will allow Canadian and Australian athletes to benefit from the skills, knowledge and facilities of each country.

Australian athletes training hard for the 2014 Sochi Games will be the first to benefit with a special focus on winter sports cooperation with Canadians, ahead of the Games in Russia.

One of the features of the agreement is access to and support in the preparation and organization of training camps in the other countries.

The Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) says this will be of particular benefit to freestyle skiers and snowboarders, where facilities are available in both countries.

“Since Vancouver 2010, Canada has been one of the world’s leading winter sport nations,” AOC President John Coates said.

“This agreement will open doors for our athletes to have access to the fantastic facilities Canada has to offer and to work alongside their athletes and officials.”

A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed by Coates and Canadian Olympic Committee President Marcel Aubut in Lausanne on June 15.

“This agreement reinforces the strong commitment Australia and Canada have to protecting the integrity of sport. It will provide a framework for greater cooperation in this regard,” Coates said.

“In addition to the benefit for our athletes, through the Olympic Winter Institute and our winter Federations we will be able to offer their Canadian counterparts training opportunities during the Australian winter season.

“Over time both our nations will be able to benefit in summer sports as well.”
