Team NB announced for 1999 Canada Winter Games

Bonard Muck

Municipalities and Housing Minister Marcelle Mersereau announced today the names of the members of Team New Brunswick who will represent the province at the 1999 Canada Winter Games, being held in Corner Brook, Nfld., Feb. 20 to March 6. Among the athletes selected is Blackville’s own Bonard Muck who will compete in the Figure Skating category.

Team New Brunswick comprises 227 athletes, 55 coaches and managers, and 19 mission staff who will provide administrative support for the event. New Brunswick will compete in 21 sports during the two weeks of competition.

The province will also be represented on the cultural side by three young artists: Emily Bartlett, theatre, a student from Saint John High School; Nathalie LĂ©gère, prose and poetry, Polyvalente Mathieu-Martin in Dieppe, and Elizabeth Grant, visual arts, St. Malachy’s Memorial High School, Saint John.

“The team spirit that leads to victory is tightly knit, and the athletes are motivated and ready,” Mersereau said. “Our athletes are already winners in the hearts of all New Brunswickers. But, the greatest victory for these young people is the unique and rewarding experience of taking part in the Canada Games.”

The minister noted that New Brunswick’s participation in the Canada Winter Games is made possible through the support of many volunteers, provincial sport organizations, sponsors and parents who have always been there to encourage the young athletes.

The official opening ceremonies of the Canada Games will be held at 1:30 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 20. Competitions begin the following day. In their role as host broadcasters, the TSN and RDS sport networks will televise competitions and other activities surrounding the Games, such as the opening and closing ceremonies.
