The Jeux du Quebec dream has begun
The countdown has started for the over two hundred athletes and coaches before the start of the first contingent of athletes heading to Montreal for the 51st Finale des jeux du Quebec in two weeks. The Estrie team hopes to maintain its 8th place showing of two years ago in Longueuil.
The selection of the athletes was done during the Mois des Jeux, between June 3rd and July 3rd. More than 22 regional finals and four selection camps attracted close to 1000 athletes. The Estrie region will be represented in 17 different sport categories in the provincial final.
The delegation includes 218 athletes (85 girls and 133 boys), 54 coaches and 15 missionaries. The first block of athletes will head out on July 17th and the second block heads out on July 21st.
