Team Canada are one of three finalists for the True Sport Foundation's award of Team of the Year, to be presented at the 37th Canadian Sports Awards, March 3rd in Toronto.

They are up against the men’s IIHF world championship squad and the national women’s water polo team.

“The annual Canadian Sport Awards is the ideal time to honour our amateur athletes,” said Victor Lachance, executive director of the True Sport Foundation. “It will be a great way to cap off the thrill of the Vancouver 2010 Olympics and get revved up for the Paralympic Games.”

I have not heard of these awards, but in checking their website, the previous recipients are very impressive.

Any idea how big an honour this might be, Eric?

You believe RIGHT.

This is HUGE, and a tremendous shot in the arm for our sport!

I somehow doubt they will win against able-bodied performances in other sports.
