Oakville’s proud sporting history was on display in 2012 at the London Olympics, where Oakville athletes brought home three medals (Adam van Koeverden in Men’s Kayak, Diana Matheson in Women’s Soccer, and Doug Csima in Men’s Rowing), as well as fine showings in swimming (Tera van Beilen) and triathlon (Kyle Jones). In fact, Oakville athletes were so impressive that Canada AM asked Mayor Rob Burton what our sport secret is.
Our 2012 Olympic athletes join the ranks of other notable Oakville athletes, including Larry Cain, Donovan Bailey, Kara Lang, Sandra Post and John Tavares.
Oakville boasts exceptional athletic facilities, as well well-established and many award-winning athletic clubs.
