Tom Sherwin, who calls the Manitoba Canoe Kayak Centre in Winnipeg home, picked up three gold medals Monday to go with the bronze he captured on Sunday at the Western Canada Summer Games in Kamloops.
A veteran of the Games, Sherwin is no stranger to winning medals. At the 2007 Games he won 10 medals, including six golds.
Sherwin finished first in the C-1 1,000 metres in four minutes 41.3 seconds; the C-2 1,000 along with Muhamed Crossman-Serb in 4:15.19 and the C-1 500 in 1:46.0. His bronze, also won with Crossman-Serb, was in the C-2 1,000 on Sunday with a time of 5:24.5.
In all, Manitoba added four golds, one silver and one bronze making its over-all total five golds, three silvers and six bronze.
Kara Hummelt of Winnipeg won her second and third medals of the Games, capturing gold in the women’s C-1 1,000 (5:49.1) and sharing a bronze with Nadya Crossman-Serb in the C-2 1,000 metres (5:24.5). Hummelt was also a member of the women’s C-4 1,000 metre team that won silver on Sunday.
Monday’s only silver medal was won by the team of Michael Delorme and Zane Clarke, both of Selkirk, in the K-2 1,000 metres (3:56.7).
