Sport Manitoba -Daily Media Outlook – Phase Two Recap

 

The 2019 Western Canada Summer Games came to an end yesterday, but not before Team Manitoba secured a few more medals. Team Toba’s final medal count has reached 171 which is 27 more medals than Manitoba won during the last Western Canada Summer Games in Wood Buffalo, Alberta. The final medal count for Manitoba included 49 golds, 59 silvers and 63 bronze medals. 

Yesterday was a busy day for athletes participating in the track and field events as we secured several more medals. Our Closing Ceremonies flag bearer Luc Deleau finished off the Games with five medals total: four gold and one bronze. 
 

Our girl’s volleyball team was victorious in straight sets against Team Alberta and secured the gold medal while unfortunately our boys team fell short to Alberta, and left the game with a silver. Our wrestlers had a great day as they brought home sixteen medals.

Braxton Kuntz, a multi-sport athlete who represented Manitoba at the 2019 Canada Winter Games in curling and won a bronze medal, took home the silver medal in the individual golf event. The male golf team won the silver medal and the female team won a bronze medal. Meanwhile, our triathlon athletes won a silver medal.  

Our athletes have worked incredibly hard in preparation for these games and we are extremely proud of them and their accomplishments.

Athletes/Teams/Coaches To Watch

  1. Team Manitoba track athlete Luc Deleau (Winnipeg) was named the flag bearer for Team Manitoba at the Closing Ceremonies of the 2019 Western Canada Summer Games (WCSG) in Swift Current, Saskatchewan.
    Luc won gold in the 400m and 200m despite being in 3rd place coming into the last 100m of each race, split 10.0 on the bronze medal 4x100m relay team and was part of the gold medal medley team. He closed things out for the 4x400m relay to win another gold.
    Luc volunteered to run an extra relay (medley) to help the team succeed despite running more races than any other athlete in the competition. He was originally scheduled to take the relay off to rest but wanted to run another race. Luc is a leader on the team and has been an Academic All-Canadian at the University of Manitoba in the Asper School of Business.
  2. Our Team Manitoba Special Olympic Athletes had an extremely successful Games experience, where Caleb Friesen and Vesta Orchard won five medals each.
