RE: Sochi Olympian coming to Quinte West
Trenton, ON: Cody Sorensen, a five year veteran on the national bobsleigh program is coming to Quinte West on Wednesday, April 30 for a luncheon being hosted by the Quinte West Chamber of Commerce at the Ramada Hotel Trenton. RBC Royal Bank is bringing Cody to the Quinte Region as part of their RBC Olympians program.
Sorensen has been a member of the Canada 1 crew for the past three seasons, they had a disappointing finish in Sochi after suffering a spectacular crash on one of their runs. Luckily nobody was hurt but it was a devastating blow to the team who have 5 world cup medals to their name and were contenders for the Olympic gold.
Sorensen will be the guest speaker and share his personal journey on setting goals, coaching, leadership and how he overcame obstacles to become an Olympian. His message is one that will especially resonate with the business community but this event is open to everyone, not just chamber members. Tickets are $25 plus HST and can be purchased by calling 613-392-7635 or through the Chamber website at www.quintewestchamber.ca

Athletes are provided with the opportunity to gain valuable skills that will help them prepare for life after sport, while also receiving much-needed funding to help them realize their Olympic and Paralympic dreams.
