Mayor congratulates Manitoban athletes heading to 2016 Summer Olympics in Brazil

On behalf of the citizens of Winnipeg and my Council colleagues, I’d like to congratulate all Manitoban athletes competing in the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

I’m thrilled to learn that this will be Manitoba’s largest turnout at the Summer Olympics since 2000! This is a very strong group of athletes, bolstered by an equally strong local support network.

Winnipeggers and Manitobans are famously passionate about sports, and we will certainly be cheering for our homegrown athletes in Brazil!
