Powering Performance with Team BMW and Mark de Jonge!

I’m a big sports fan and when the Olympics come around I’m always excited to see how Canadian athletes perform!

BMW Canada recently held a contest for a VIP experience with one of the athletes they sponsor and I was fortunate enough to win the prize featuring kayaker Mark de Jonge!

What did it include? I was flown out to Halifax with flights, accommodations and meals provided! Upon arrival, I was greeted by Lauren (the awesome BMW rep) who revealed our vehicle for the weekend trip…a brand new BMW X5!

We loved exploring Nova Scotia and figuring out all of the features of the X5 (changing into sport mode still blows me away!)

Of course, the main purpose of the trip was to have a private kayak tour with Mark de Jonge. I learned he’s won the world championship the last 2 years in his specialty, the K-1 200m, and is a gold medal favourite heading into Rio!

I’m incredibly grateful to BMW Canada for a trip I’ll never forget! When you’re watching the Olympics, cheer on Mark de Jonge!
