Go Lyndon Go! Royal LePage agent Lyndon Rush to compete at Olympic Games in

TORONTO, Feb. 17 /CNW/ - Royal LePage is proud to support Lyndon Rush's Olympic medal aspirations. Lyndon, along with his father Jerry Rush are Royal LePage real estate agents based in Red Deer, Alberta.

Lyndon Rush has had a winning streak over the past weeks which earned him a highly coveted spot on the four man and two man Canadian Olympic 2010 bobsleigh teams competing at the Whistler Sliding Center. Rush, along with Lascelles Brown will compete in the two man bobsleigh and will be joined by Chris LeBihan and David Bissett to compete in the four man bobsleigh.

"One of the reasons why we think we will do well is because of the support we have gotten from the business community including Royal LePage, Borden Ladner Gervais and B2ten," stated Rush. "The equipment has been the biggest change this year. We have better equipment and I think that is one of the main reasons why we are experiencing more success."

Lyndon played football for five years at the University of Saskatchewan before receiving a call from Bobsleigh Canada Skeleton urging him to give the sport of bobsled a try. Lyndon has developed into one of the top pilots in Canada while specializing in commercial real estate for Royal LePage's Team Rush in Red Deer, Alberta. He is married and has two daughters, Olivia and Amelia.

The first heat in two man bobsleigh is scheduled on February 20th and the four man bobsleigh heats start on February 26th.

"It's an honour for Royal LePage to support Lyndon, and alongside Canadians everywhere, we are proud of his wins for Canada at the World Cup events," said Phil Soper president and chief executive of Royal LePage Real Estate Services. "We are very excited for him and definitely consider ourselves part of Team Rush."

Brokers across Canada have also received an opportunity to join Team Rush and show their support for Lyndon with Royal LePage's new social media initiative. Brokers have been posting a 'Team Rush' icon on their websites linking to Royal LePage's Olympic page highlighting Lyndon.
