I am incredibly happy and honoured to announce that I will be joining our PyeongChang 2018 Mission Team as Athlete Mentor alongside Jeane Lassen, Vincent Marquis and Catriona Le May Doan. It will be my first Winter Olympic Games but the fourth ones that will experience. This time, I will work behind the scene to help our athletes to perform. It is going to be an intense adventure.

Dear Prime Minister Trudeau,
My name is Julien Bahain. I am a three time Olympian and Olympic medalist in rowing. I had the honor to represent my father’s country, France, in Beijing and London, and in 2016, the privilege to represent my mother’s country, Canada, in Rio de Janeiro. Before I moved to Canada, I challenged myself and decided to row the Atlantic Ocean. In February 2013, I successfully reached Martinique after 49 days at sea. It was an incredible adventure and probably the hardest I have undertaken.
Last fall, as a Canadian Olympian, I was pleased and honored to meet you in person in Ottawa. As we shook hands in the House of Commons, you said to me: “Canada is proud of you. I am proud of you.” I could not have been prouder on that day. Thank you.
