The City of Swift Current will host the Western Canada Summer Games from August 9-18, 2019! Featuring 16 sports, over 20 venues, and a range of cultural performances and programs, the Games will be the largest event to ever take place in the region. Over 1,700 athletes, coaches, officials and mission staff from Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Northwest Territories, Yukon, and Nunavut will participate in the 10 days of competition. These athletes, aged 13 – 20 years old, are our country’s next generation of national, international, Olympic, and Paralympic champions.
At age 14, Natalie Fournier is one of the latest athletes to be named to Team Manitoba. She comes to triathlon quite naturally as her parents have both competed on the national and international stage before. For Natalie though, it’s simply a passion she almost can’t put into words.
Trent Crane is a multi-sport athlete who has been participating in sports since the age of four. Trent competed this past winter in hockey at the 2019 Canada Winter Games, and he is also headed to the 2019 Western Canada Summer Games for baseball this summer.
The city of Dauphin is getting ready to host the Manitoba Summer Games in 2020, and they are doing so by creating a legacy project that will be used for years to come by riders from all over the province.
