Team Nova Scotia did the province proud at the 2005 Canada Games in Regina, Sask., says Premier John Hamm. “These athletes, coaches and volunteers demonstrated the very best that Nova Scotia has to offer,” Premier Hamm said today, Aug. 22. “No matter the sport, they showcased extraordinary athleticism, teamwork and sportsmanship.” The two-week competition wrapped up Saturday, Aug. 20. Team Nova Scotia’s athletes won 46 medals over the two-week competition, finishing in sixth place. “Now that our athletes, their coaches and the many volunteers are back in the province, I urge all Nova Scotians to thank them for their performances and their role as outstanding ambassadors for Nova Scotia,” said the premier. “Their success on the national sporting stage is another reason for all Nova Scotians to be proud of our province and our values of hard work and fair play.” Details of a reception honouring Team Nova Scotia are expected to be released within the next several weeks.
