Profils d’athlètes « Partie V »

Mar 24, 2021

CEC souhaite reconnaître les athlètes sélectionnés pour le programme de l’équipe nationale 2020. Bien qu’ils n’aient pas eu de résultats sur la scène mondiale en 2020, ces athlètes ont accompli de nombreux exploits pour se rendre là ou ils sont maintenant. Leur performance, leur passion et leur dévouement ont malheureusement été assombries par la pandémie. Il est temps de reconnaître qui ils sont, il est temps de célébrer leur performance!

Nous terminons cette série cette semaine avec nos deux Olympiens – Alannah Yip et Sean McColl
