When you’re expecting 20,000 guests, your house better be lit.
Luckily, when you’re Canadian, you have a lot of cool to rely on. Just look inside the Canada Olympic House in Rio if you don’t believe us.
In a Facebook Live video posted earlier today, we were taken inside the special place that friends and family of Canadian Olympians can visit while they’re down in Rio cheering them on.
- 25 Team Canada athletes from Toronto that you should be following on Instagram
- 27 Canadian medal hopefuls for Rio 2016 Olympics
- 5 new Olympic sports added for Tokyo 2020
Inside the ‘House’ you’ll obviously find a Team Canada store, where people can pick up more red-and-white garb than a Valentine’s Day giveaway. Oh, and we have a mascot too…? It’s a moose, obviously. Its name is Komak.
In case you thought it might somehow be possible to have a Canada Olympic House in Rio without every room, hall, and staircase being sponsored, you’re a bigger amateur than most of these athletes.
Anyway, there’s a cafe, a lot of wood, some paddles, a ‘celebration lounge’ (we hope gets used), a terrace with Muskoka chairs, and beer. What else do you need?
Have a look inside and let us know what you think.
Though we have to say, it looks way better at night…
