We Care About Water!

Water is so much a part of our daily lives that we take it for granted. But at some point, many people have a once-in-a-lifetime ‘aha’ moment when they realize how precious water is. Maybe they were travelling in Australia and saw how droughts have devastated crops and livestock. Maybe they have relatives who got sick during the Walkerton, Ontario water crisis. Maybe it was a quiet moment on a still lake at the break of dawn. Maybe they saw something on TV about water pollution in China, or read an article about water shortages in Africa. Maybe their water isn’t safe to drink and they have to boil it.

We asked the RBC Olympians why they care about water, and if they had a moment when they realised how important water is. Scroll through the stories below to see why your favourite Olympian cares about water!
