No Saskatchewan athletes in action on Day 11
The majority of Saskatchewan’s Olympic contingent wrapped up their Games experience in the first 10 days of action in Tokyo, but there’s still more to look forward to.
Pike Lake diver Rylan Wiens and his coach Mary Carroll will open competition in the men’s 10-metre platform event with preliminaries on Day 14. If he advances to semifinals and potentially the finals, both of those events will be held on Day 15.
Pole vaulter Anicka Newell, who calls Saskatoon her hometown, tied for first in the qualification round of competition on Day 10 and has advanced to the finals which will be held on Day 13.
Regina’s Kenzie Priddell is in Tokyo as an alternate with the women’s artistic swimming team. They’ll begin competition with the Team Technical Routine on Day 14 and end on Day 15 with the Team Free Routine.
