Saskatchewan Olympic Hopefuls

The 2012 Olympic Games are underway in London.  As a proud Saskatchewan girl, I wanted to share a few links and information on our athletes that are competing.  Our province will be represented by 7 Olympic athletes and 5 Paralympic athletes. 

Olympic athletes include Brianne Theisen (heptathlon), Cory Niefer (10-metre air rifle, 50-metre rifle), Krista Phillips (basketball), Kelly Parker and Kaylyn Kyle (soccer), Reuben Ross (synchronized diving) and Rachelle Viinberg (rowing). You can find out more about our home grown talent on and among other websites.

The Canadian Sport Centre Saskatchewan (CSCS) has information on our Olympians and Paralympians (who begin their games August 29).  The Paralympic athletes include Robert Hudson (archery), Keira Frie (athletics), Alexandre Dupont (athletics), Earle Connor (athletics), and Logan Campbell (sailing).  CSCS has also provided a very handy guide (shown in SK time) so that you can catch the prairie athletes in action.

We will also have many athletes competing in Meadow Lake, SK from July 29 to August 4 for the Saskatchewan Summer Games.  Perhaps these your hopefuls will be on the Olympic stage one day!

Go Canada Go!
