There hasn’t necessarily been a whole lot to celebrate in the world of local sports these past 12 months, but the Greater Sudbury Sports Hall of Fame is hoping to change that with the induction of the Class of 2020/2021.
Five Olympians headline an impressive group of nine individuals, a set of siblings, as well as a legendary local sports team.
Jim Logan (hockey - Cortina d’Ampezza - 1956), John Beedell (sprint canoe - Rome - 1960), Gary Trevisiol (cycling - Los Angeles - 1984), Robert Esmie (track and field - Atlanta - 1996) and Tessa Bonhomme (hockey - Vancouver - 2010) are among the group which also welcomes the inclusion of the inaugural Norm Mayer Memorial Sports Dynasty induction.
The Capreol Fastball Mazzucas will be the first to fill that slot, as an organization, recognized for years of excellence on the diamonds that would culminate with several provincial championship banners for teams representing the northern railway town.
Rounding out the Class of 2020/2021 are:
- Gary Foy - nordic and alpine ski - Builder
- The Fielding Brothers - Carman, Cliff and Cecil - boxing - Builders
- Christine Jaworski - arm-wrestling - Athlete
- Brent Hatton - golf - Athlete
- Terry Crisp - hockey - Athlete/Coach
Given the current pandemic, the decision has been made to delay the annual sports celebrity dinner until such a time that the local sports community might be able to safely gather to celebrate in larger numbers.
