Team Canada’s ski jumper competing in Pyeongchang, Taylor Henrich, gave Calgarians a surprise virtual visit earlier this month.

The superstar athlete broke records as the first Canadian woman to win a World Cup ski jumping medal. And to show our athletes the level of support that they have at home, Canadian Tire arranged a surprise visit through their Red Door.

The Red Door is a life-sized, physical door that enables a real-time, live-stream interaction between families, friends, and fans of Team Canada with Olympians and Paralympians in PyeongChang – across a distance of thousands of kilometers.

On February 13, Henrich’s family, friends, and supporters came together at the CF Chinook Centre Brighter Lounge for a special meeting through the Red Door. Chandra Crawford, Olympic cross-country skiing Gold Medalist, founder of Fast and Female, and one of Taylor Henrich’s role models also took part in the surprise.

These programs are part of Canadian Tire’s We All Play for Canada Olympic campaign, encouraging Canadians to show their support for our athletes – because no matter who we are or where we come from, Canadians play for something greater than themselves: #WeAllPlayForCanada.
