Touch of Gold at IG Field

Olympic Gold Medallist Desiree Scott made an appearance at a recent Valour FC game sporting her Olympic gold medal. Team Canada defeated Team Sweden in a heart-pounding final with Team Canada winning in penalty kicks at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Airon Recuenco had the ultimate meet and greet with Scott and was excited to hold a gold medal in his hands.

Scott, as a local Winnipeg used the opportunity to showcase the medal and more importantly, inspire the next generation of soccer players.
