August 5, 2005 – Catherine Vipond and Dave Vukets were chosen to be Team Ontario Ambassadors from among all the sports present for week one of the Canada Games. Vipond will be part of the Gift Exchange cermony and Vukets will be one of eight athletes who were chosen to carry the Canada Summer Games flag into the stadium on Saturday night. Both athletes demonstrate the characteristics vital to this position – leadership, a personal interest in the Games, distinctive athletic or academic achievements, media or public speaking experience or hold past awards. You can catch the opening ceremonies which will be broadcast on CBC on Sunday afternoon.
Good luck to all the riders representing Team Ontario at the Games.
