Best Athlete

Gold Winner Sidney Crosby

Silver Winner Ellie Black

Bronze Winner Mark de Jonge

This city clings to Sidney Crosby’s success like the embarrassing hockey parent we are. Crosby is the local boy done good, who skates around typical hockey bro bravado to work the Tim Hortons’ drive-thru as a goof or ride the Harbour Hopper with the Stanley Cup. Is it any wonder so many thousands came out to watch his victory parade through Cole Harbour this summer? Look, no one’s having any debates at City Hall about renaming something after Brad Marchand, you know? Sid’s our kid and we’re going to keep showing him off to the whole world.
