The Winter Olympics are coming in hot and we can guarantee two things, gold medals in all things hockey and we’re definitely ordering in!! Skip The Dishes, born-in-Canada just like our favourite athletes aims to take the sting out of the predictable kitchen mishaps that can result from distracting cooking. Knowing that all eyeballs will be firmly locked in Beijing for the next few weeks, Skip has just announced a partnership with five well-celebrated Canadian Olympic bound athletes and created a hilarious campaign of kitchen blunders with our shared struggles in mind.

Skip’s roster of athletes includes:

  • Marie-Philip Poulin: Team Canada’s Beijing 2022 Olympic hockey team, captain. Three-time Olympian and two-time Olympic champion
  • Mark McMorris: Two-time Olympian in snowboarding, two-time Olympic medallist, and 20-time X Games medallist
  • Vanessa James & Eric Radford: Team Canada, Pairs Figure Skaters. Newly formed team – Radford is a three-time Olympic medallist and two-time World Champion.  James is a three-time Olympian, a World Championships medallist and a two-time European Champion medallist
  • Alex Massie: Para Snowboard. Two X Games medals

Empowering our athletes while highlighting our own personal internal (kitchen) struggles, Skip’s spot of ads embrace the culinary chaos sometimes felt while reminding Canadians there’s always another option. Cozy up on your couch and let the app do the rest.

Skip’s continued support of our Canadian athletes further demonstrates their commitment to fueling their talents. Check out their new hilarious ads on YouTube to see the other side of homegrown heroes.

The Beijing Winter Olympics start Friday, February 4th and wrap up Sunday, February 20th.
