Gala Sports Québec Recognizes Roberval

At Gala Sports Québec, the annual awards evening for Quebec-based amateur athletes, the marvelous organization and volunteers of the 2010 World Open Water Swimming Championships, hosted by the wonderful people of Roberval and the excellent organization of Traversée internationale du lac St-Jean were recognized and honored.

The award for the international event of the year was the FINA World Open Water Championships that attraced athletes from 43 countries who were hospitably hosted by more than 450 volunteers.

As every open water swimmer knows well, the foundation of the sport is built upon the goodwill and support provided by volunteers. It was an award very well-deserved.
