"Sport has been the driving force in my life from a very young age, but I am not alone. Saskatchewan has produced many exceptional female athletes. Fiona Smith, Dana Antal, Kelly Bechard and Hayley Wickenheiser are Saskatchewan Olympians I have been fortunate to play with, Sandra Schmirler changed women's curling and captured Canadian's hearts, Catriona Le May Doan is a double gold medalist in speed skating...the list goes on. I'm honoured to be mentioned in the same breath as these phenominal SK athletes.
Sport empowers participants, unifies communities and as we saw in Vancouver this past year, inspires a nation. Congratulations to everyone in Saskatchewan who participate, officate, coach and volunteer in the sporting community. It is you who are shaping the next generation of Saskatchewan Athletes."
