Best Athlete


Gold Winner Ellie Black

Silver Winner Jill Saulnier

Bronze Winner Courtney Baker

Canada’s greatest gymnast vaults to another first-place finish atop a podium of all-female candidates in this year’s competition for Best Athlete. Black’s accomplishments are too many to name, but nonetheless worth noting. This year, she was honoured as the youngest inclusion in the provincial Sport Hall of Fame’s Top 15 Athletes in Nova Scotian History. Black came in ranked number 12 of all time, even at the young age of 22, and as one of only three honourees still actively competing. The two-time Olympian isn’t showing any signs of slowing down either, having recently won gold at the World Challenge Cup. She’s joined by Olympian and team Canada hockey star, Saulnier and Dalhousie volleyball standout and national team player, Baker.
