Sending out a huge congratulations to Team Sask alumna Rylee Miller, whose phenomenal performance and leadership at the PEI 2023 Jeux du Canada Games has earned her the Roland Michener Award!
The Roland Michener Award is presented after each installment of the Canada Games to an outstanding male and female athlete who exemplify leadership, cooperation and excellence on and off the field of play during the Games.
Miller became the most decorated gymnast in Team Sask history after earning a gold medal in her floor routine, a silver on the beam, and bronze on the uneven bars during her time in PEI. She will continue her gymnastics career this fall, competing for the Southern Utah University Thunderbirds in the NCAA Division I.
“It was an incredible feeling to represent Saskatchewan the way I did and find success through my focus and dedication to the sport,” Miller said. “After my beam routine in event finals, it was so thrilling to hear the crowd cheer so loud when I stuck my dismount. It was an unforgettable opportunity and I am very pleased to receive this award as a highlight of my career.”
Last year, fellow Team Sask athlete Skylar Varga took home the previous Games' Roland Michener Award following his gold-medal leadership as captain of the men's volleyball team at the Niagara 2022 Canada Summer Games.
