Nancy Greene makes Top 50 Moments in BC Sports History

Rossland’s own Nancy Greene Raine made the BC Sports Hall of Fame's Top 50 Moments in BC Sports History.

Rossland’s own Nancy Greene Raine made a list of top 50 sports moments in BC.

The BC Sports Hall of Fame has announced its Top 50 Moments in BC Sports History and Raine’s giant slalom gold medal at the 1968 Winter Olympics is number five on the list.

“I am honoured to be on the list,” Raine told the Rossland News. “BC has a very long and rich history in sport, and there are many more than just 50 people or performances to celebrate.”

The list was released in the lead-up to the Banquet of Champions on June 9 in Vancouver. It will be narrowed down to the final four, which will then be celebrated at the banquet.

To determine the top four, the BC Sports Hall of Fame has setup six rounds of voting on its website.

“BC has a colourful and fascinating sports history,” Allison Mailer, executive director of the BC Sports Hall of Fame, said in a press release. “Our board of directors embraced the challenge of narrowing down to 50 from the 211 different moments that were nominated and we cannot wait to see British Columbians vote on the moments and engage in a fascinating debate…. We encourage everyone to visit our website and cast their vote!”

Thursday is the last day to vote in the first round. Visit bcsportshalloffame.com/vote to participate.
