TORONTO - The Canadian Olympic Committee and Adidas Canada announced a four-year partnership agreement Tuesday that will make the sporting goods company the official high-performance apparel and footwear supplier for the national Olympic team.

The collection will include compression and workout gear, various outwear layers for outdoor training and long- and short-sleeve performance T-shirts along with footwear and accessories.

Adidas Canada plans to launch the collection at Sport Chek stores around the country on Nov. 7. Canadian Tire and Sports Experts will carry select items starting Nov. 30.

Sport Chek and Adidas Canada also announced their sponsorship of seven Canadian Olympic hopefuls who will be involved in grassroots events around the country encouraging participation in sport.

The campaign, called "What it Takes," will feature freestyle skier Chris Del Bosco, alpine skier Erik Guay, short-track speedskater Charles Hamelin, bobsledder Kaillie Humphries, women's hockey player Meaghan Mikkelson, skeleton racer Jon Montgomery and snowboarder Maelle Ricker.

Nike Canada supplied jerseys and sports equipment for the team ahead of the London Games last year. The Adidas Canada deal is the Canadian Olympic team's first partnership involving high-performance apparel and footwear, a COC spokesperson said.
