Canada Games celebrates 50 unforgettable years with gold-medal winning performance
2017 Canada Summer Games – (Winnipeg, August 13, 2017) After two amazing weeks of celebrating excellence in sport in Canada, the 2017 Canada Summer Games Host Society and Co-Hosts, Treaty No. 1, Treaty No. 3 and the Metis Nation represented by the Manitoba Metis Federation along with 6,000 passionate volunteers are bidding adieu to The Hottest Summer in Half a Century and one of the most successful Canada Games ever.
For two wonderful weeks this summer as the country watched from the edge of their seats – hands raised in the air and voices elevated with excitement and pride – young athletes came together for an athletic competition like no other.
“Throughout the Games athletes inspired us with their talent, spirit and the sheer joy they brought to the task of competing and sharing this experience with fellow athletes from around the country,” remarked Hubert Mesman, Co-Chair of the Host Society. “Their grace under pressure speaks to their character and leadership potential while their performances here have inspired and moved us! We wish them continued success in both their athletic careers and life aspirations.”
“Today is a day of many emotions. You came as ambassadors of your Province or Territory with a passion for sports and you have really impressed us!” said Mariette Mulaire, Co-Chair of the Host Society. “Whether you won or lost, we hope you will have a lasting memory from your participation in the Games and the life experience it provided.
