RDC News

Two athletes, two bronze medals, two new Saskatchewan records!  Canada Games 2017 is in the history book and with it two new 10m Platform medal holders – Alyssa Clairmont from Regina and Rylan Wiens from Saskatoon.  It was a fantastic end to a great week, with 6 athletes in 10m finals. We would have had 7 but for the rule preventing more than 3 from a province competing in finals.  Both Alyssa and Rylan had to put some 9s and 9.5s in the water to clinch their medals – they fought to the very last dive and came out on the podium.  They also broke big records.  Rylan broke his own record set at Sr. Nationals – that record had previously belonged to Cole Miller since 2011.  Alyssa broke Joelle Gallais’ record which was set at Toon Town in May – that record was previously set by Lindsay Hamilton in 2006.  Amazing to see so many big records falling this year.  Congratulations to all of our Canada Games athletes, coaches, judges and manager on a job well done.

2017 Canada Summer Games


Congratulations to all Saskatchewan athletes that competed in Week 1 of the 2017 Canada Summer Games. Well Done!


The competition was fierce and the cheering was loud.  I am sure Winnipeg was ready to send the Saskatchewan cheerleaders home after the first event! There were times that we thought we were at Rider game.


Team Sask Diving competed and remained strong throughout 4 days of fierce competition.  Congratulations to Ryan Weins of Saskatoon Diving Club and Alyssa Clairmont of Regina Diving Club, each bringing home a Bronze Medal in the 10m Platform event, and setting new Saskatchewan Provincial records as well.
