CHEER ON SASK AT THE TOKYO OLYMPIC GAMES

July 15, 2021

After a lifetime of hard work and dedication to sport, 12 individuals from Saskatchewan will represent Canada at the Olympic Summer Games July 23 to August 8 in Tokyo.

The Saskatchewan contingent includes one official, two support staff, three coaches and six athletes with ties to the province.

Pike Lake’s Rylan Wiens, who will compete in the 10-metre platform diving event, headlines the group. The 19-year-old becomes the province’s first-born and raised male Olympic diving athlete to train solely in Saskatchewan. Wiens has twice been named the Male Youth Athlete of the Year at the Saskatchewan Sport Awards and has received Sask Lotteries Future Best funding four times in his career.

Other athletes include softball outfielder Jenny Gilbert, pole vaulter Anicka Newell, swimmer Cole Pratt, boxer Tammara Thibeault and alternate for the artistic swim team Kenzie Priddell.

The athletes will be joined by three coaches who have attended multiple Olympic Games between them. The group includes Lisa Borgerson (pistol), Lisa Thomaidis (women’s basketball) and Mary Carroll (diving). Support staff Rhonda Shishkin (women’s basketball), Graham Olson (swimming) and official for women’s soccer Chantal Boudreau will also be attending the Games in Tokyo.

Join Sask Sport, Sask Lotteries and the Canadian Sport Centre Saskatchewan on cheeronsask.ca for everything you need to know about the Olympics and Paralympics.  The website documents the athletes, coaches, officials and staff from Saskatchewan on their journey to the Olympic and Paralympic Games, features a comprehensive schedule specific to the Saskatchewan athletes that includes date, times, viewing options and results and will house daily recaps with results and information specific to the Saskatchewan contingent. It will also feature an aggregate of news from the Canadian Olympic Committee, Canadian Paralympic Committee and National Sport Organizations.
