Manitoba’s basketball leagues get set for the new season, ball hockey becomes ice hockey, track moves indoors and soccer becomes futsal. Still, here at SportsLife Magazine, we have to say good-bye. In this year’s Fall Edition, we get set for the badminton season, for basketball and indoor volleyball, but we also talk triathlon with Oak Bluff’s 2020 Olympic favourite Tyler Mislawchuk, learn about 96-year-old record holding sprinter Lou Billinkoff and welcome Winnipeg’s Olympic soccer star Desiree Scott into the Canada West Sports Hall of Fame.
