There’s less than a week to go before the XXXI Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro and the Alberta contingent of athletes has been finalized. This year, 31 elite athletes from across the province will represent Team Canada as we go for gold!

Alberta’s athletes on Team Canada range from seasoned Olympic veterans to first-timers, bikers, runners, rowers and even one published author. They should all be very interesting to watch (and cheer on!) as they help Canada go for gold.

You can find the complete list of athletes that Alberta is sending to the Olympics here. If you want to catch your favourite sport, you can check out the full schedule of events, including medal ceremonies, here. Pro tip: Rio is three hours ahead of Alberta, so plan accordingly!

And if the Olympics weren’t enough, don’t forget that the Paralympics start September 7. See you then!
