The 2013 Canada Summer Games are set to open and TSN and TSN2 are ready to kick off coverage from Sherbrooke, Quebec.
The Games will bring together more 4,200 athletes, coaches and officials supported by 5,000 volunteers, and 10,000 visitors from across Canada. Le Palais des Sports, l'Université de Sherbrooke, Bishops University and le Parc Sylvie-Daigle are among the main venues for the 2013 Canada Summer Games. The Canada Games are held once every two years and alternate between winter and summer, representing the highest level of national competition for up-and-coming Canadian athletes.
TSN's 40 hours of live coverage is anchored by two-time Olympic gold medallist and past Canada Games participant Catriona Le May Doan. Joining Le May Doan on site in Sherbrooke is veteran TSN broadcaster Vic Rauter, who will call live event action over the two weeks.
The games run through August 17, and the first competition event can be seen on TSN on Saturday as B.C. faces New Brunswick in women's soccer at 2:30pm et/11:30am pt.
