Meet Olympic Bronze Medalist Michelle Williams At 11 A.M.
Oakville, ON – On Saturday, Sept. 17 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., the doors of the Toronto Rock Athletic Centre will swing open to the community for a day of family fun. On hand to join in on the fun will be Olympic bronze medalist Michelle Williams who earned her medal in the pool in the 4 x 100 metre freestyle relay in Rio.
Williams was a part of Canada’s first medal at the Rio Olympics, kicking off a great run for Canada in the pool. Canadian swimmers combined to win six medals at the 2016 Summer Games (one gold, one silver and four bronze). She will be signing autographs and available for photos with her bronze medal from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.
There will be lots of fun for the kids including free face painting, a balloon animal artist, a bouncy castle, games and prizes. A community barbecue and the Beaver Tails food truck will also be on site to give this event a unique taste. Lacrosse fans can pick up a stick and test their accuracy in the Rock shooting gallery right alongside Rock players with the Toronto Rock Cheerleaders there to cheer you on!
TRAC Athletics Director and Toronto Rock legend Colin Doyle will be on hand to sign autographs and answer questions about the new programming offered at the TRAC this fall.
“It’s a very exciting time at the TRAC,” explained Doyle. “I am looking forward to meeting the community on September 17th and getting the word out about our new programs and the vision for TRAC Athletics. We have a lot of exciting projects that will be rolled out over the coming months, but first, I hope everyone stops by the TRAC to say hello and check us out at community fun day.”
