Samsung is donating $1,000 for every Olympic medal won by Canada


Last updated: July 26th, 2021 at 17:01 UTC+01:00

Samsung’s donating up to $25,000 to the Canadian Olympic Foundation, the company announced last week. Samsung’s a long-time partner of the Canadian Olympic Committee, and the company confirmed that it will donate $1,000 for every medal that will be won by Canada at the 2020 Olympics, up to a total of $25,000.

This means every Canadian athlete will have an opportunity to support the Canadian sport system through Samsung by taking a medal home. “We are thrilled that Samsung Canada has chosen to show its support for Team Canada by investing in Canadian athletes,” said David Shoemaker, CEO & Secretary General of the Canadian Olympic Committee.

Canadian Olympians have already secured $4,000

The 2020 Olympic Games are underway and, as of this writing, Canada is in 11th place with a total of four medals. One bronze medal was won by Jessica Klimkait (Judo), and two silver medals were secured by the Women’s Freestyle Relay team and the Women’s Synchronized Springboard Diving team, respectively. Canada’s Margaret Mac Neil won a gold medal at 100m Butterfly Swimming.

Samsung is a long-time Olympic supporter, and it launched the Galaxy S21 Olympic Games Edition to mark the event. The company also gifted goodie bags containing Galaxy products — including the aforementioned flagship phone — to Team Galaxy athletes.
