Meet today's #MissionStaffSpotlight
Name: Ross Lynd
Mission Staff Role: Media & Results
Ross is what we call a Games expert. His involvement in Canada Games alone covers 12 Games over the years. Here are some of his responses to our questions.
Q: Any words of advice for our Team Sask participants?
A: To athletes, coaches, managers – be prepared both physically and mentally for what will very likely be the top sport experience of your career. Be mentally tough to work through issues that may be out of your control. Find time to enjoy the whole Games experience which will include activities away from your own competition.
Q: What are you most looking forward to in Prince George?
A: Attending as many of the events as possible knowing that I will be watching a number of our future Canadian Olympians.
Mission Staff are volunteers for Team Sask who act as a liason between the team and the host society. They will do their best to ensure that all of the logistics around your time at the Canada Games run smoothly, allowing the athletes, coaches and managers to focus on competition. Mission Staff will handle the orders of boxed lunches, call transportation if a bus is running behind, inform the team of important information regarding the Games, etc. Most importantly though, Mission Staff are there to cheer you on and support the team.
Make sure you say hi to the Team Sask Mission Staff; it will make their day!
