Samsung is Donating $1,000 for Every Olympic Medal Won by Canada

Samsung stated last week that it will donate up to $25,000 to the Canadian Olympic Foundation. Samsung has been a long-time supporter of the Canadian Olympic Committee, and the business has announced that it will pay $1,000 for each medal won by Canada at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic, up to a total of $25,000, to the Canadian Olympic Committee.

This way, every Canadian athlete will have a chance to support the growth of the sport in Canada through Samsung by raking 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.

$4,000 Already Claimed by Canada

The Tokyo 2020 Olympics is underway, and as of now, Canada is in 11th position with four medals. One bronze medal was won by Jessica Klimkait in Judo, and two silver medals were secured by the Women’s Relay team and Women’s Synchronized Springboard Diving team, respectively. Margret Mac Neil of Canada won the gold medal at 100m Butterfly Swimming.

Samsung is a long-time Olympic supporter. It also launched the Galaxy S21 Olympic Games Edition to mark the event.

Team Galaxy athletes were also given goodie bags featuring Galaxy products, including the aforementioned flagship phone.
