Well, That was fun
The 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics are now history and for Manitoba, those Games were fun.
Right off the top, the young woman on our cover, Kaitlyn Lawes from the St. Vital Curling Club, teamed up with former Winnipegger John Morris, to win gold in Mixed Doubles Curling.
Then Winnipeg’s own Heather McLean, finished 14th in the women’s 500-metre speedskating event in a time of 38.29 seconds and then she finished 25th in the 1,000 in a time of 1:17.25. Then our hockey players got going and in the end, six of them won medals. You’ll meet them, if you haven’t already, on page 20.
But there is a lot more to this edition of SportsLife Magazine. You’ll meet the six Manitoba players who will represent Canada at the 2018 World Junior Football Championship. A load of those guys – Shae Weekes, Cole Adamson, Brody Williams and Andreas Dueck – are already playing university football and playing at a very high level. We have some baseball, boxing, plenty of University of Manitoba Bisons news and from the University of Winnipeg. We have a couple of great soccer stories from the Manitoba Blizzard and the Golden Boy Youth Tournament. We also have photo pages featuring U of W Men’s Basketball by Kelly Morton, the WIT Basketball Tournament by James Carey Lauder and the Canada West Track championship by Jeff Miller.
So sit back, relax and enjoy another edition of SportsLife Magazine. This one is about as much fun as anyone should be allowed to have.
