HOT SHOTS: Day 12 in Photos

By Kirsten Neil

Wait. Was that rain falling from the sky yesterday? Trying to dampen our Canada Games mood?! Ha! No way. A little rain is not going to stop us now. We had a few delays, but once those skies cleared, the competitions shifted into higher gear. Here’s how the day turned out...

Don’t tussle with these muscles. Wrestling started yesterday at Axworthy Health and Recplex and it got heated, quickly. Yesterday saw the start of the team competition, which finishes today. Individual competitions begin Friday.

The qualification rounds of Women’s Softball at John Blumberg keep chugging along. After a rainy afternoon, the skies cleared and gave us a blazing sunset to close the day.

They’re proud, they’re loud, get used to it
