CSIO is thrilled to rollout the second installation of our new Athlete Spotlight program! This new initiative highlights selected CSIO registered athletes throughout the year on our website and social media outlets. Athletes who are selected for a highlight will receive a gift from Community Partner, Cool Canuck!

This Spotlight goes to Tyson MacDonald from Swim Canada, and Pamphinette Buisa from Rugby Canada! Here is why they were selected:

 

“There exceptional courage resilience and positivity through being forced to train from a tiny student apartment whilst being unable to train in a proper facility due to Ontario’s lock down and stay at home order. Through this difficult time Tyson still managed to push himself and continue to inspire everyone around them to be the best version of themselves in and outside of sport!”

 

“She led the Black Lives Matter rally in Victoria, BC, with over 9,000 people live/ online. She is selfless and always giving back to the community. She makes everything around her better and uplifts everyone else around her.”

Our first Spotlight goes to Crystal Emmanuel from Athletics Canada, and Puisand Lai from Wheelchair Basketball Canada! Here is why they were selected:

“Crystal is an amazing athlete, Fastest women in Canada. Very proud of her and how she reached out to the youth and gives them positive feedback and encouragement. Crystal is very involved and always helping out in the community.”

“Puisand “Boots” Lai has only been part of Canada’s wheelchair basketball team since 2018, but in that short time has made a big impact on the team. She is the youngest member of the team but in a lot of ways she carries herself on the court like a seasoned veteran. She’s calm and collected on the court and is always pushing to learn and be better for her teammates. She has a bright future in the sport and at this rate could be one of the best class 1’s in the world. “
