8 BC Games Alumni in BC Sports Hall of Fame's 2020 Induction Class

The BC Sports Hall of Fame aims to inspire future generations by telling engaging stories of extraordinary achievement in sport by individuals, teams, and organizations throughout BC’s history. Each year, a group of the province’s most impactful sport-figures are inducted, celebrated, and put on display among the Hall’s expansive collection of more than 27,000 artifacts for all who visit. Among the 2020 Induction Class are eight BC Games alumni, joining two fellow athletes, three builder-coaches, one team, one pioneer, and one media member as this year’s cohort.
