Janine Hanson, Canadia Olympic Silver Medalist is Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries New Community Ambassador
Winnipeg, Manitoba – As a Manitoban, an accomplished athlete and community role model, Janine Hanson is the ideal person to represent Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries as its new community ambassador.
Janine will be sharing stories of her inspiring journey to the Olympic podium. She will be present at Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries sponsored events and functions throughout Manitoba, including speaking to community groups, youth and sports teams.
“I believe that being part of the IMPACT Team will enable me to encourage other young athletes to work hard at achieving their goals and dreams, while promoting sport in Manitoba. I am really proud to be a part of this initiative,” said Janine Hanson. “Achieving my goal of winning a silver medal at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games was one of the most exciting times of my life. I had a lot of support and encouragement from a number of people and organizations throughout my career to help me get to where I wanted to be. I look forward to sharing my story with others.”
“Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries takes great pride in supporting Manitoba’s communities,” said President & CEO, Winston Hodgins. “I am very pleased that Janine is our new IMPACT Team ambassador.
