The Holiday Season is almost upon us but that doesn’t mean the sports world slows down. In fact, during the week between Christmas Day and New Year’s Day, it might be busier than at any time during the year. There are basketball and hockey tournaments, plenty of ringette games and skiing events and without question, there will be curling. It’s Canada, after all. In this, our 2018 Holiday Edition, we want to celebrate the great performances of the past couple of months and at the top of the list is curling. We have two terrific stories from two of the most iconic people in Manitoba sport. 1. Dr. Cal Botterill, the sports psychologist who has worked with Canada’s Olympic Team and half a dozen NHL teams, introduces us to a Grand Experiment: How four successful skips, Kerri Einarson, Brianne Meilleur, Val Sweeting and Shannon Birchard, came together to form a super team. 2. And the great Resby Coutts brings us a report on the national mixed curling championship held right here in Winnipeg. As well, we will introduce you to the newest class of the Manitoba Baseball Hall of Fame, the two Manitoba athletes who represented Canada at the Youth Olympics in Argentina and two of the greatest badminton players ever to be trained right here in Manitoba. We’ll also meet the three players from the WHSFL who made Canada’s U-18 football team, follow Marissa Naylor’s the marvelous year on the links and alleys and say good-bye to the retiring commissioner of the Winnipeg High School Football League, Rick Henkewich. We’ll pay tribute to Bisons Basketball Coach Kirby Schepp and Team Canada, 90-year-old badminton players Stefan Carter, swimmer Kelsey Wog and Wesmen soccer star Shae-Lynn Dodds.
