Dedicated athletes Sindy Hooper and Kent Guindon know what it means to compete. A triathlete and former competitive soccer player, Hooper is happiest training for Ironman competitions on a scenic trail or in nature’s pools. An only child, Guindon sought a means to achieving peak physical fitness divergent from team sports and fell in love with the intensity and athleticism boxing and strength training demands. As athletes who thrive in an individualized arena, cancer was an unexpected and unforgiving opponent. Hooper and Guindon's athleticism and accompanying mental and emotional health gave them a fighting chance to fight their chance.
The Canadian Paralympic wheelchair rugby team took home a silver medal in London and finished fourth in Rio. Team co-captain Patrice “Pico” Dagenais is the president of Ottawa’s local wheelchair rugby team, the Ottawa Stingers. He says although his teammates are great athletes, there’s something significantly more special about the group of guys he spends a few hours with two nights a week.
Second Home Team
Billeting provides a home away from home for more than 1,200 junior hockey players across the country. This is the story of one of those homes. Over more than a decade, the Grays have opened their home and hearts to nearly a dozen Ottawa 67’s players, providing meals, humour and guidance along the way. This short doc was produced during our undergraduate studies in Carleton University's journalism program in collaboration with Scott Wheeler for the fourth year production class' Twenty-fifth Hour program. Special thanks to the Gray family for welcoming us into their home, as they have done for many young hockey players. Family photos courtesy of Valerie Wutti and Joan Gray.
