Games Legacy realized at UFV

BCGS Legacy

The University of Fraser Valley Department of Athletics and Campus Recreation unveiled an expansion to its fitness facilities, created in partnership with the Abbotsford 2016 BC Summer Games and PacificSport Fraser Valley.

What was once a nondescript storage room within the Envision Financial Athletic Centre on the UFV Abbotsford campus – formerly packed to the rafters with racks upon racks of seldom-used folding chairs – has been transformed into a dynamic fitness space filled with state-of-the-art workout equipment.

The transformation was made possible by a $33,000 grant from the Abbotsford 2016 BC Summer Games Legacy Fund, in response to a joint application from UFV Athletics and PacificSport Fraser Valley. Cascades varsity and club teams will use the new facility for strength training, and UFV students, faculty, staff and alumni will have access to it through Campus Rec group fitness programming. PacificSport Fraser Valley, a not-for-profit regional sport hub created to lead athlete, coach, and community sport services, will also run programming out of the new space.


Karina LeBlanc Field in Maple Ridge

Karina Le Blance Field

Olympic bronze medalist in women's soccer and BC Games alumni Karina LeBlanc was in Maple Ridge in August for a ground breaking ceremony to officially open construction on a new all weather field that will bear her name.

LeBlanc was originally surprised with the news that the field will be named after her when she was part of the BC Games announcement of Maple Ridge being awarded the 2020 BC Summer Games in March.

Now, the next generation of athletes will have a chance to play on Karina LeBlanc Field at the 2020 BC Summer Games and be inspired to follow in the famous footsteps of an athlete who took disappointment and turned it into dreams.

The Games are staged every two years and the 29th version of this event took place in Taipei, Taiwan August 19-30.

Team Canada was one of 141 nations to take part in the event along with 11,000 student athletes and staff. Competition took place in 14 sports with Team Canada winning 13 medals - three in athletics, two in swimming, two in diving and one in weightlifting.
