Best Athlete

Gold Winner Ellie Black

Silver Winner Lindell Wigginton

Bronze Winner Jillian Saulnier

Ellie Black has had a big year. She won five medals at the Pan Am games in Lima and qualified for the Olympics in Tokyo next summer. On top of that, she’s snagged the highest honour in the hearts of Haligonians. (The place of this in relation to her galactic accomplishments on the international sport stage is up for discretion.) “One of the most special things about being from Halifax is showing the next generation of younger athletes…that it doesn’t matter where you’re from. If you have a dream and a goal and you work hard, you can achieve it.”
