Olympian opens natural health and organic trade show

"VANCOUVER, May 5 /CNW/ - Four-Time Olympic Medalist Kristina Groves will open the largest trade show in Western Canada for the natural health and organic products industry, Expo West 2010 (, May 15.

"We are so proud of Kristina and her Olympic accomplishments," said Beena Goldenberg, President, Hain Celestial Canada, the sponsor of Kristina's guest appearance at Expo West. Kristina emerged as one of Canada's stars at the 2010 Winter Games, winning a silver medal in Women's 1,500m and a bronze in Women's 3,000m speed skating.

After the show opening, Kristina will sign autographs in the Hain Celestial booth (No. 727) from 10 a.m. to noon; and pictures with Kristina may be taken for a nominal donation to her favourite charity, Right to Play, an international humanitarian and development organization.

As a consumer of natural and organic foods and a proponent of green living, Kristina has been an ideal spokesperson for Hain Celestial. "Hain Celestial is so fortunate to be associated with Kristina," says Goldenberg. On the last day of the 2010 Winter Games, Hain Celestial pledged a $5,000 donation to Right To Play, a donation matched by Kristina from her medal winnings."
