Judo Canada launches new modern web site
to better meet needs of its clients

OTTAWA – Tuesday, Aug. 23, 2011 – Wanting to offer an information forum
that is more accessible to all its clients, Judo Canada has just launched a
brand new and modern web site at www.judocanada.org

Considered a strategic communications tool, this new Internet site will
help enhance the image and reinforce the message of the Canadian judo
federation to its many clients. Athletes, coaches, as well as parents,
institutional partners and sponsors, media and even judo fans now have
access to a site that is equipped with various new functions and a new
overall look.

“The site was conceived to meet the information needs of these various
clients, while guaranteeing coherence in the organization of the
information. Navigation throughout the site is quite simple and definitely
more focused towards social media,” explains Yves Régimbald, Judy Canada’s
operations director.

He mentions that at just one year away from the Olympic Games in London,
interested people will now be able to consult the detailed profiles of
athletes from the Canadian judo team. In terms of athletic development, the
fact that the new site contains a greater quantity of video content will be
a great asset to athletes and coaches alike. Finally, a newsletter will now
be available by free subscription.

National coach and 2 time Olympic medalist Nicolas Gill explains that the
site is the result of a formidable team effort whose main objective was to
shine a spotlight on the athletes while modernizing the site’s technological
tools.

Begun more than a year ago, this vast project involved countless partners
from the Canadian judo community. It required the integration of various
logistical, technological, organizational and human parameters. It is being
launched this week while the world judo championships are being held in
Paris from Aug. 23-28.

“Let’s bet that our Canadian athletes will help inaugurate our new site by
winning new medals and thereby giving us plenty of new content,” said
Régimbald.

He invites the public to check out the new site and to visit it frequently.
“Have fun navigating on www.judocanada.org <http://www.judocanada.org/> ,”
he concluded.
