Olympic Champion Adam van Koeverden Visits Mentor For CBC Program!

IMG_2211Four-time Olympic medalist sprint kayaker Adam van Koeverden was at the Main Campus this morning as part of the CBC Sports Day In Canada program – “a national celebration of the power of sport to build community and get Canadians moving.”

As part of this nation-wide celebration, CBC will be visiting community centres and schools across the country and engaging athletes and non-athletes in various sports challenges. This morning, Adam van Koeverden took lessons from members of the Brampton Acro Ropers jump rope club. Two of the young instructors (Jake Whyte and Thomas Rewa) got their start in the Mentor Primary Division’s jump rope club!

It was a fun morning! We thank Adam Van van Koeverden, members of the Acro Ropers, and the crew from CBC for the visit! Sports Day In Canada takes place on November 21.
