CONGRATS to our TEAM CANADA! Gold for Junior • Silver for Senior
After months of prep, planning and support, our Junior and Senior Team Canada athletes made their way to the WRCs in Mississauga, Nov. 27-Dec. 3, to challenge Finland for world ringette supremacy. Congrats to the Junior Team for their hard-won Gold, and to our Senior Team for their Silver. Despite falling to an exceptional Sr Finland Team again this year, our Canadian athletes are among the best in world and demonstrated the speed, skill and talent that inspired many through expansive social media coverage and live web games.
Our Calgary athletes Jennica Murray, Rachel Ung, Madison Bonsel, Shaundra Bruvall and Christianne Varty (now with NRL Waterloo Wildfire) brought home medals and a sense of accomplishment. Competing in exhibition and then best of three games for their medal honours—they proudly represented both our country and the fastest game on ice.
Thank you to Catriona Le May Doan for her support and work as WRC Ambassador, headlining the Opening Ceremonies on Monday, Nov. 27 and promoting WRC coverage—and then cheering from back home in Calgary at the Olympic Oval with her daughter’s team (U14AA White).
