“This is a high character young team who have worked very hard to improve their skills over the past several months to compete on the national stage,” said Pat Cody, Row Nova Scotia’s Provincial Team Head Coach. “They are dedicated and committed to representing Nova Scotia rowing with every stroke. They know they have stiff competition with the bigger provinces, but I have no doubt they’re going to bring their best.”
This is the 50th anniversary of the Canada Games during the year Canada celebrates its 150th birthday. The celebrations will be big. The first Canada Winter Games was held in 1967, followed by the Canada Summer Games in 1969. Rowing was included as one of the inaugural summer sports in the 1969 Games, and was hosted by in Halifax-Dartmouth. “This team is eager to show what the province is made of,” said Peter Webster, President of Row Nova Scotia. “Rowing has a long and deep history in Nova Scotia and we have some great athletes who can show people that this is a competitive sport for the province.”
The 2017 Canada Summer Games are a national multi-sport and cultural event being held July 28-August 13th, 2017 in Winnipeg, MB and will feature 4,200 athletes from 20 different sports. Rowing athletes will attend the opening ceremonies in Winnipeg on July 28 and then make the two-hour trek to the rowing venue in Kenora, ON to compete against the best under 21 rowers in Canada.
