Max Gallant - Sailor of the Month
Our Paralympians aren't the only ones taking the world by storm - Max Gallant has just been named the Sailor of the Month by Sail Canada.
Max shined the brightest out of many hopeful sailors competing for glory:
"Max placed 6th in the U21 Laser World Championships in Kiel, Germany. This stand-out performance is a product of Max’s full-time dedication and commitment to sailing. As a developing athlete, Max hopes to build off of the momentum of this victory, and use it as a stepping stone in the remainder of his sailing career. “This year has been an amazing year with selection to The Canadian sailing team to help fuel my efforts towards better and better performances. My progression through the year followed a trend of peaks and valleys as I am still learning to peak at the right times.” Max is praised for his excellent work ethic, and willingness to help others. “This fall my training will have a heavy emphasis on fitness in order to provide me with a platform to work from when I compete in European events this spring.”"
