Record breaking day for Manitoba at CSG

It was a historic day at the Canada Summer Games for Manitoba, that included a whopping eleven medals and some familiar names captured them.

 

Heading into this year’s edition of the Games, Manitoba’s previous record of medals was 35 that was set in 2013 in Sherbrooke, Quebec.

Not only did Manitoba smash their previous medal record, they also topped their gold medal record, winning their ninth which surpasses the provinces previous high which were set in 1997 when the Games were held in Brandon.

Medal Winners

In the individual up to 98KG men’s wrestling competition, Flin Flon’s Hunter Lee won a gold medal, as he beat Kyle Jordon 4-0 in the final.

Hunter's brother, Carson Lee also earned a silver medal for Manitoba in wrestling.

In the individual up to 84KG women’s competition, Jessica Rabet solidified another gold medal for Manitoba with her 4-1 win over Angel Hiltz-Morrel in the final.

In the pool, Oksana Chaput continued her dominant week as she became the only Manitoba athlete to win multiple gold medals, as she captured a second first-place finish in the 50M freestyle final.

In canoe and kayak action, a total of six medals were earned by Manitoba, including Maddy Mitchell who won her fifth medal, which leads all Manitobans in individual medals. In total, Mitchell won a gold and silver yesterday.

Women’s Volleyball

The Manitoba women’s volleyball team continued winning on Friday night as they clinched a berth in the gold medal game with a 3-1 win over Ontario, 25-19, 22-25, 25-17, 26-24.

With the win, the team will take on the also undefeated Alberta women’s volleyball team in the final after they cruised over New Brunswick in their semi-final.

Men’s Soccer

The quest for a gold medal ended for the Manitoba men’s soccer team on Friday evening in Winnipeg.

Alberta scored the only goal of the game, at the 24-minute mark when Abraham Dukuly got one past the Manitoban goalie.

Despite the loss, Manitoba will still play for a bronze medal against Quebec this afternoon at 4:00.

Women's Volleyball

It was another tough game for the Manitoba women's softball team after they lost 6-5 to Ontario, who were previously 8-0 before the game, and are now 9-0 and in first place.

Men's Volleyball

You never want to lose in a quarterfinal, or anytime for that matter, but when you do, it's how you rebound and for the Manitoba men's volleyball team, they did a nice job of rebounding on Friday afternoon.

They took on Saskatchewan in a placement game and won 3-1, 25-23, 25-20, 24-26, 25-10.

The team's CSG has now wrapped up.

Men's Golf

Manitoba's Ryan McMillan had a great chance to medal at the CSG, but he fell back in the final round on Friday and settled for eighth place. McMillan was three over total. Other Manitobans in the competition included Zach Wytinck who was 12 over and Spencer Norrie who was 13 over.

Women's Golf

Camryn Roadley was the highest Manitoban in the competition as she finished in 11th place with a score of 21 over, while fellow Manitoban Bobbi Uhl was 12th with a 25 over score, and Rebbeca Kuik finished in 13th with a 33 over score over the four days.

More

Friday was certainly simply put a fantastic day for Manitoba at the CSG and the team still has multiple opportunities to add onto their medal total today in various sports, including a gold medal opportunity for the women's volleyball team.

Stay tuned here to 730CKDM to see how Manitoba did today.
