Welcome to the official site of TEAM CANADA KARKONOSZE 2014 .
We are a volunteer group of Polish-Canadians representing Canada at the Polish International Winter Games. Our group consists of individuals who vary in their experience from the novice right up to former professional athletes. Every participant is a valuable member of our TEAM.
Polish International Olympic style Games are winter games that take place every 2 years at the mountains of Poland. Poles living abroad come to Poland to compete in Alpine Skiing, Cross-Country Skiing, Snowboarding, Luge, Short-Track Skating, Long Track Speedskating and Ski Jumping in five age categories. The games receive a huge media coverage in Poland and around the world through TV Polonia satellite broadcast. The 2014 games will be in Jelenia Gora, one of the most famous winter resort in Poland.
In 2008 Team Canada placed first amongst 700 Poles who represented 26 countries such as USA, Great Britain, Sweden, Russia, Ukraine, Latvia, France, Australia, just to mention a few. We brought home 13 gold, 14 silver and 15 bronze medals. This would not have been possible without our sponsors whose continued support helped us to get where we are today. If you want to see TEAM CANADA in action please view our photo album.
