John Rozenberg, a Peel-Halton and area branch member, won four gold and one silver medals at the Canada Senior Games (CSG), in August 2008, held at Dieppe, N.B. These were all for swimming events. He won gold at Actifest in Hamilton in 2006 to qualify for the Dieppe games. He also won gold in London, Ontario this year, which assures him of a berth in the Canada Senior Games in 2010, which will be held in Brockville, Ontario.

John has won gold in swimming in every Actifest since 2000. In 2004, he won two gold and two silver medals in the CSG held Whitehorse, Yukon.

Canada Seniors Games
Here is some more information about the Ontario and Canada Senior Games:

The mission of the Ontario Senior Games Association (OSGA) is to provide adults, 55 years plus in Ontario with an opportunity to increase their social interaction with others, and to maintain and enhance their physical and physiological well-being through participation in recreational activities and sport.
OSGA is a provincial organization headquartered in Toronto dedicated to supporting and co-ordinating senior games programs across Ontario for adults 55+. Forty districts throughout the Province organize annual competitions in a variety of events, depending on the activities enjoyed by seniors in the area.

Over 20,000 adults 55+ participate in these games.

Games are divided into Summer Games and Winter Games. Annually, OSGA holds Ontario Senior Games, where district gold medal winners in sanctioned events can compete against each other. In the summer of even numbered years, Actifest winners compete in about 15 sanctioned summer games events and in odd numbered years, Winterfest winners compete in about 9 sanctioned winter games events. Competitors are divided into age categories, at the Provincial level.

Gold medal winners of the Ontario Senior Games can enter the Canada Senior Games, which are held biennially. Whitehorse, Yukon, hosted the 2004 Canada Senior Games (CSG), Portage La Prairie; Manitoba hosted the CSG in 2006; and Dieppe, New Brunswick hosted the 2008 CSG this past August.

Members interested in participating can find information at www.ontarioseniorgames.ca ...or they can contact their nearest Senior Centre.
