Laurentian Para-Nordic coach Patti Kitler and Laurentian Nordic athlete Collin Cameron received some major recognition by the Sudbury Sports Hall of Fame. Patti’s Coach of the Year award was a testament to her success in developing adaptive techniques to assist Para-Nordic skiers to master and excel in cross-country skiing. However, Patti’s contribution goes far beyond one single year. Sudbury’s vibrant cross-country skiing community owes much of its success to the early efforts Patti made to develop the sport in this community.
Also recognized was Laurentian Nordic superstar Collin Cameron, who won the Elite Athlete of the Year Award. Cameron burst onto the nordic skiing scene in 2015 under Coach Kitler and has his eyes set once again on Pyeongchang, where he recently returned from with a World Cup gold medal.
Laurentian Nordic is proud of our athletes, coaches and volunteers!
