U14s Win Two Gold & Men’s Overall at CanAms!
Submitted by U14 CanAm Head Coach Jacques Reid….”We all love to win but this 2019 CanAm event was about more than winning. In all of my duties as Head Coach, this event stands apart thanks to the coaches working as a united front, working seamlessly for the good of each athlete. I truly believe the athletes responded to this and acted like a true team that deserved to hold our Ontario flag high! Well done everyone!
Now for the results. The last time AOA won a gold medal at the U14 CanAms was 2016. I congratulate our two gold medal winners (pictured here): Elli Clark of Toronto Ski Club in the GS and Colton Bartholomew of Craigleith for his Slalom win. Colton also earned the honour of holding the historic Taschereau Cup up over his head as many legends have done before him including, Erik Guay and Nancy Greene Raine. A shout out also to our top 10 finalists: Duncan Armstrong/GPeaks 5th in SG & 8th in SL – Natasha Olsen 8th in GS – Matthew Bassin/Craigleith 6th in GS. FULL RESULTS HERE>
I’d like to thank the team of coaches: Brian McGregor/TSC, Nicole Burgess/GP, Nick Bubella/ GP, Chris Tepera/Craigleith, Mike Schneider/Caledon, Brayden McEwen/Fortune and Yoshi Watanabe/Alpine. I know I speak for all of us when I say we’re proud of all of these kids – keep doing what you are doing, work hard & have fun on the slopes! ~ Jski
