Teams, Athletes and Official Partners
Canada's Senior National Biathlon Team
We’re proud to announce that we are an official sponsor of Canada’s National Biathlon Team, currently training towards the Beijing 2022 Winter Olympics. In July 2021, Altitude had the pleasure of hosting two members of the team, Christian and Scott Gow. Check out their experience in the video below:
Canadian Olympic Cyclist
We had a lot of fun working with cyclist Alison Jackson, who represented Canada in the Tokyo 2021 Summer Olympics. We sent Alison simulated altitude training equipment before she headed off to Tokyo.
Open Water Swimmer
Lawyer Robert McGlashan will complete three impressive open water swims as part of an open water marathon, Swim for Change, to raise $300,000 for 3 Canadian charities. He will swim Lake Erie, Lake Ontario and will be the first Canadian to swim around Angel Island in California.
Robert is on the board of an environmental organization dedicated to cleaning up and protecting the Great Lakes. He is also an elite open water swimmer, who has swam across Lake Titicaca (Bolivia), the Straits of Magellan (Chile), Bonifacio Channel (Italy), the Alcatraz Island (USA), the Bay of Naples from Capri to Naples (Italy) and swam over 25 hours across Lake Geneva from Switzerland to France.
Robert trains at Altitude Athletic 3 times a week to prepare for this amazing goal! He states, “The benefits of altitude training for me have been improved strength and endurance as well as increased rate of recovery.”
Help Robert get to his goal of raising $300,000 by donating to the Mountain Gorilla Conservation Society of Canada!
Canadian National Bobsleigh Team
Altitude is thrilled to be working with Canada Bobsleigh athlete Steph Drost. Steph is originally from Thunder Bay, Ontario. She was invited to try out for the Bobsleigh team in October 2020 and most recently represented Canada at the IBSF World Cup in Königssee, Germany. When she’s not competing with the team, she does her duties as a firefighter in Thunder Bay.
