Welcome to the 2021 Night of Champions!

What a year! Since there were less tournaments, championships, and titles to be won due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Night of Champions is celebrating a diverse group of Manitobans who triumphed and persevered through the challenges of the pandemic over the last year.

We’re excited to showcase their incredible sport stories this week. Follow along as we celebrate 36 Manitobans, and feature a handful of truly outstanding champions.

We’ll be releasing stories every day on this page during the week of April 12-16. And keep an eye on our social media channels as well. Use the hashtag #NOC2021 to join the conversation.
