The Canada Summer Games in Winnipeg hosted thousands of athletes and would not have been possible without the contribution of thousands of volunteers.

Attendance at the Canada Games shattered expectations. Massive crowds came out to watch Canada’s next set of Olympians compete.

Manitoba was awarded the Centennial Cup by the Canada Games Council. The award is given to the province or territory for exemplifying the pan-Canadian sport development objective at the Canada Games.

Team Manitoba final medal count was 10 gold, 15 silver and 17 bronze.
