Olympics 2018 Snowboard Team: Outfitted in Designs by Corrine Huntblog
Since designing the 2010 Olympic medals, First Nations artist Corrine Hunt has now created designs for the Canadian Snowboard team uniforms at the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea.
The official competition uniform for the Canadian National Freestyle Snowboard Team includes a hand-knit Canadian Heritage Sweater designed by Corrine Hunt with four different symbols illustrating her Kwakwaka’wakw and Tlingit heritage.
“The motifs on the sweater and the uniform jacket represent strength, beauty, creativity and agility. Emblazoned with the bear, raven, sun and orca, the athletes will shine inside and out.” –Corrine Hunt
The official Olympic uniform for the Canadian National Freestyle Snowboard Team was created by Burton and the sweaters were knit by local artisans with Granted Sweater Company.
