Olympic Recap: Team Canada in PyeongChang 2018

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Team Canada rocked it at the the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang! Our athletes brought home 29 medals which included 11 gold, 8 silver and 10 bronze medals, a record for Canada!

As the official florist of Skate Canada, we were on the edge of our seats watching our figure skaters take the ice. They've all had such an amazing year and this was truly the crowning achievement! Not only did they win gold in the team event, but Kaetlyn Osmond, Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford skated to Olympic glory in their events as well.

Canada’s darlings, Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir, set fire to the ice, winning gold in both the short and long programs! Although we are sad to see them retire from competition, they deserve a much needed break….no wait….we’re kidding….PLEASE DON’T GO!!! 

We are also a proud supporter of Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton, which had the largest showing the organization has ever seen in the Games. These guys killed it! Justin Kripps and Alexander Kopacz tied with Germany for gold in two-man bobsleigh while Kaillie Humphries and Phylicia George won bronze.

We want to thank all of our athletes for their dedication and perseverance, proving once again, that Canada is a force to be reckoned with!

Bloomex Provides Flowers for Skate Canada Synchronized Championships

Bloomex was so proud to sponsor the 2018 Skate Canada Synchronized Skating Championships February 23-25, 2018! Our Canadian skaters have had such an amazing season and the synchro teams continued the streak, impressing judges with their breathtaking routines. Bloomex provided all the medalist bouquets which were made of red roses and carnations to coordinate with Skate Canada’s colours. Each bouquet could then be dismantled so that each individual skater on the team received a flower. The competition took place at the Tribute Communities Centre in Oshawa, Ontario, boasting the best teams from across the country.

The top teams, Nexxice and Les Suprêmes qualified for the 2018 ISU World Synchronized Skating Championships in Stockholm, Sweden, April 6-7, 2018. 

We wish all the athletes the best of luck! 

Go Canada Go!

Bloomex supports Canada's figure skating super stars!

The 2018 Canadian Tire National Skating Championships were the last stop before PyeongChang for Canada’s top figure skaters. The best of the best competed for the chance to join Team Canada at the Winter Olympic Games on their journey for gold.

Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir dazzled judges, twirling into first place in all their categories. The dynamic duo was also honoured with the responsibility of carrying Canada’s flag during the Olympic opening ceremonies on February 9, 2018. Patrick Chan, Kaetlyn Osmond, Meagan Duhamel and Eric Radford are also among the athletes competing for Canada in their respective events.

Team Canada

As an official sponsor for Skate Canada, Bloomex provided all the flowers including the medalist bouquets presented to all winners. Our team in Vancouver had so much fun designing the arrangements which were a combination of vibrant red and white blooms, Skate Canada’s official colours.

We wish all our athletes the best of luck over in South Korea and will be cheering them on from here at home! #PyeongChang2018
