In 2008, The Canadian National Amputee Hockey Team was recognised by CBS Sports Arete Honors for Courage in Sport. Past recognised athletes include the likes of Lance Armstrong, Muhammad Ali, and Tiger Woods to name a few. The yearly event honors athletes that have aspired to excellence and overcame unbelievable obstacles.

As with much of my work which hasn't been posted, I sometimes need a reminder to share my work with the public. The reminder came when I received an emailed link to the CAHC team portion of the 2008 Arete Honors program on YouTube a few days ago. I figured some of the photos I shot last year, when the program was being filmed might nicely accompany the posted video.

Next week I'm heading out to Montreal to cover the training camp. In April the 2010 ISIHF World Championships will also be taking place in Montreal where team Canada will try to win their 5th straight gold medal.
I'll be there as well. I'll post more info on my blog once it becomes available with schedules and stuff for those that want to come and cheer on their favorite team.

The Canadian team is always looking for sponsors - especially corporate ones. If anyone out there in Canada (or worldwide for that matter) that has money and would like to help out a team that has won nothing but gold medals, and proudly represents a nation in the greatest sport of all time, please get in contact with Don, Tom, Allan or Anita ... at your earliest convenience of course!

In the meantime, sit back and relax, at least for the next 7 minutes, and watch a great video about a truly awesome hockey team. Who knows... you might even get inspired.
