Exposed: Mike Christie – Fabelist – Extreme Enviro Activist – Sports Spy for Canadian Olympic Athletes

Can we rely on Mike Christie ? He used lying, cheating and deceit to encourage Ontario residents to Ban Cosmetic Pesticides.

He literally scared people into believing.

Will he do the same for our Olympic Athletes, will he be a value to Canadians?

He even carried the Olympic Torch for Canada at one time.  Someone like this should be looking out for Canada's best interest not catering to Environmental Groups on his days off.

A hero that thinks Health Canada is lying to us?

Do we want him on our Team?

Down with Mike Christie from 95 Wrenwood Crescent Nepean, Ontario.

Mike Christie is Co-Chair of the City of Ottawa Health Dangers of the Urban Use of Pesticides AdvisoryCommittee (HDUUP).

Mike Christie’s title with Own The Podium makes it sounds like he works for a spy agency, and that’s not far off the mark. The 52-year-old from Ottawa is in charge of gathering and analysing sport intelligence for Canada’s athletes, and then delivering it to them in a way that allows them to stay ahead of the rest of the world. OTP was established five years before the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games in Vancouver and Whistler, B.C.

Mike Christie’s title with Own The Podium makes it sounds like he works for a spy agency, and that’s not far off the mark.

The 52-year-old from Ottawa is in charge of gathering and analysing sport intelligence for Canada’s athletes, and then delivering it to them in a way that allows them to stay ahead of the rest of the world.
OTP was established five years before the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games in Vancouver and Whistler, B.C., to get Canada’s athletes on the podium at their home Games.

The organization has undergone major personnel changes since the Games ended. Former Olympic swimmer Alex Baumann is the new interim chief executive officer of OTP.

John Furlong, the CEO of the Vancouver Olympic Games organizing committee, was named chairman of OTP’s new advisory board. Ken Read, the former head of Alpine Canada, has been appointed OTP’s director of winter sport.

Christie, however, will continue to gather sports intelligence under the title of high performance adviser, intelligence and performance analysis, OTP announced Wednesday.

"I was saying to somebody when I was looking at that title ‘it sounds like I should be working for CSIS (Canadian Security Intelligence Service),’’ Christie said Wednesday from Ottawa. "It’s very secretive, intelligence.’’

Christie describes his job as "the team behind the team,’’ and he does operate in the shadows.
Canadians may have heard of Top Secret, which was the secret research and development component of OTP. Christie’s job is somewhat different, although he doesn’t want other countries to know what he’s doing either.

He identifies what other countries are doing in performance technology and tries to refine those methods.
"I was kind of like the architect or the quarterback of the file, looking at the plan and putting all the pieces in place,’’ Christie explained. "First, analysing what other countries are doing and then coming up with a made-in-Canada plan.’’

The United States has been the world leader in performance technology, so Christie adopted some of their strategies.

A simple example of his work is setting up a television production studio at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing and capturing the live television feed of the host Olympic broadcaster.
That allowed the Canadian women’s soccer team to scout their opposing teams without having to send scouts to different Chinese cities where the Games were played.

At the rowing and canoeing venue in China, he commandeered one of two physiotherapy rooms available to the Canadian team at the boathouse and set up a video analysis room.
Canada’s paddlers and rowers were able to immediately break down their performances after heats and semifinals. The Americans were doing the video analysis, says Christie, but they didn’t have an on-site lab immediately accessible to coaches and athletes.

"The whole secret to this is giving rich intelligence to the coach in a timely fashion so he can make a decision faster than any other nation in the world,’’ Christie explained.
While analysing their first heat, the men’s eights team identified they weren’t extending their legs on their first few strokes and corrected the problem en route to winning gold.
Christie set up performance technology labs at venues at the 2010 Winter Games. Speedskaters, snowboarders, and freestyle skiers went to the lab and analysed their own performances between races while cooling down or warming up on a bike.

Christie provided alpine ski coaches with small laptop computers and re-directed live feeds of training runs and races to them. The coaches could see the entire race while standing out on the mountain, and not just one section.
He admits it will be more challenging setting up performance technology labs in the field at the 2012 Summer Games in London and the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. He won’t have the same freedom to move and access to prime locations as he did at home in Canada.
Christie also has to stay on top of new technologies and teach them to coaches and athletes.

"Our goal is to make these coaches and athletes self-reliant, so we don’t become a crutch and they become their own analysts. That work never ends,’’ he said. “Our objective is to be much stronger across the board in more sports.’’
