Saskatchewan contingent set to star at Commonwealth Games

Nine Canadian Sport Centre Saskatchewan athletes are off to Birmingham, Ireland for the 2022 Commonwealth Games, which get underway on Thursday. Weightlifter Alexis Ashworth, divers Rylan Wiens and Margo Erlam, boxer Tammara Thibault, wheelchair basketball player Garrett Ostepchuk and lawn bowler Jordan Kos are set to join hurdler Michelle Harrison, pole vaulter Anicka Newell and wheelchair racer Jessica Frotten who are all a part of Team Canada’s athletics contingent.

Stay tuned later in the week for the full run down on all the Saskatchewan competitors.

Harrison shows stuff in Oregon

Michelle Harrison had a weekend to remember in Oregon. The Saskatoon product finished 14th in the women’s 100 metre hurdles after setting a personal best of 12.74 in the semifinal. Despite the personal best, Harrison narrowly missed qualifying for the final.

After winning a national title earlier in the summer, next up for Harrison is the aforementioned trip to Birmingham for the Commonwealth Games.

Sutherland, Pearson join Reindl on world stage

Borden’s Savannah Sutherland and Meadow Lake’s Avery Pearson will each star for Team Canada at the 2022 World U20 Athletics Championship in Cali, Columbia. Sutherland, who competes for the University of Michigan Wolverines, will look to get back on the podium after winning bronze in last year’s edition of the women’s 400m hurdles. Meanwhile, Pearson, who competes for the University of Saskatchewan Huskies, will look to improve on her seventh place finish in the women’s 800m from 2021.

Saskatoon’s Jason Reindl will serve as Team Canada’s head coach for the event. Reindl also serves as the head coach for the Huskies track and field team, where he coaches Pearson.

Connell, Drury to represent Canada in Mexico

Saskatoon products Lee Connell and Danielle Drury were each named to the eight member national team for the upcoming 2022 World Championships, which will be held from Aug. 19-27 in San Luis Potosi, Mexico.

The World Championship appearance will be the first for Drury, but second for Connell after representing Canada at the 2021 World Championships.
