Winnipeg team wins Amazing Race Canada

  • Print

TORONTO -- A father and son from Winnipeg have won the inaugural edition of The Amazing Race Canada.

Tim Hague Sr. and Tim Hague Jr. emerged victorious in a family-themed faceoff against sisters Vanessa Morgan and Celina Mziray, and brothers Cory and Jody Mitic.

The final showdown took place in Toronto and capped a slow but steady climb by the Hagues, who were nearly eliminated twice but were saved each time by a surprise twist in the game.

The elder Hague, a 48-year-old registered nurse, often cited his determination to overcome a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease as focusing his efforts on the show, which has been a ratings winner for CTV.

The duo win $250,000 in cash, two 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingrays and free first-class flights for a year, anywhere Air Canada flies.

The victory comes at the expense of Kitchener, Ont.-raised former military sniper Jody Mitic and his brother Cory, who emerged as apparent front-runners after winning the three previous legs in a row.

The 36-year-old retired soldier often touted his military training as getting him through some of the tougher challenges. That included some strenuous endurance and agility tests, which were especially challenging because Mitic lost both his legs below the knee when he stepped on a land mine in Afghanistan in 2007.
