Hamilton’s CANUSA Games committee is hoping to attract more athletes to this year’s event.
Hamilton athletes will travel to Flint, Michigan, from August 9 to 11, to compete in the 62nd annual competition.
CANUSA Hamilton president Greg Mills says they are still looking for athletes to participate in track and field, and in particular, golf.
About a thousand athletes will face off in a more than a dozen sports: baseball, basketball, bowling, darts, golf, gymnastics, hockey, pickleball, soccer, skeet, swimming, track and field, triathlon, and volleyball.
Judo will make its return to the CANUSA lineup since 1976 while Pickelball has become an officially recognized sport in the long-standing friendly competition.
