Sport Manitoba – Daily Media Outlook – Phase Two

Day Nine Recap

Yesterday, Team Manitoba brought home multiple medals from athletics and rowing. Our boys baseball team played in the gold medal game and unfortunately could not catch up to Saskatchewan as they lost 8-4 and ultimately walked away with the silver medal. Both our female and male volleyball teams won their games and are now headed to compete in the gold medal games today. The male wrestling team won their duel against Saskatchewan, while unfortunately our female wrestlers lost the team duel to Saskatchewan. Our divers ended the competition by adding two more medals to their count and our triathlon athletes also managed to secure two more as well.

Story/Interview Opportunities

Athletes/Teams/Coaches To Watch

  1. Our diving and baseball athletes have formed an incredible bond over the duration of the Games. It all started when our baseball mission staff member Glen Hunter organized a cribbage tournament on the bus ride to Swift Current. Ever since, the athletes have been at each other’s events cheering each other on. The baseball boys brought “10” signs to the diving team’s first day of competition and the divers brought “K” signs for strikeouts at the boy’s baseball game. They have both been heavily invested in each other’s sports throughout phase two, and they have formed an incredible bond and friendship between the teams that is sure to last beyond the Games.
  2. Ebraheim Aldrar immigrated to Canada from Syria three years ago. This is Ebraheim’s first time at the Games, but he is not the first member of his family to be on Team Toba His older brother Khaled Aldrar is a 2017 CSG medalist in wrestling.
  3. Adam Ingram from our golf team is the son of Derek Ingram, Golf Canada Head Coach, who coached at the 2016 Olympics. Adam will be hitting the green today in hopes for a medal.
  4. Male volleyball player JJ (Jeremy) Love is from Dauphin. Volleyball runs in the family for Love as his sister won the NCAA championship with UCLA and played on Team Canada for a number of years. Meanwhile, Love’s other sister plays for Brandon University. Love will be competing today in the gold medal game against Alberta.
