From the military to the mats
Rick Sutherland new men's competitive program head coach at Yellowknife Gymnastics Club

If you recognize Rick Sutherland from somewhere, you're probably right.
You probably saw him serving the public good through the city's municipal enforcement division.
But Sutherland has traded in his badge for the high bar, so to speak, as he's now the head coach for the men's competitive program and director of recreational programs for the Yellowknife Gymnastics Club, a dual-role position he assumed earlier this month.

Jarrett Vornbrock's European adventure

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - Jarrett Vornbrock's stock seems to be rising among the mixed-martial arts circle, so much so that he's been invited to take his talent across the Atlantic.
The Yellowknife MMA star is set to join the Canadian delegation heading to Prague, Czech Republic this coming November for the International Mixed Martial Arts Federation European Open. Just like his time in Las Vegas earlier this month, Vornbrock will be fighting in the flyweight division.
The format of the event is similar to Las Vegas in that Vornbrock will be fighting in a single-elimination bracket.

Table Tennis North joins national family

SOMBA K'E/YELLOWKNIFE - Table Tennis North was officially welcomed into the Sport North family last September and now, the organization has come full-circle.
Table Tennis Canada made Table Tennis North its 12 th official provincial/territorial body earlier this month at its annual general meeting.
Becoming part of the organization means Table Tennis North can now take part in Table Tennis Canada's national championships and sanction tournaments under the national sport organization's umbrella.
