2021 PRIX DE RÉALISATION DE DURÉE DE VIE 2021

If you are an Ontario Weightlifter and/or have competed Nationally, you will no doubt have had the pleasure of encountering Jill in one of the following endeavours: competing with Jill, being officiated by Jill, officiating with Jill, coached by Jill, coach-adjudicated by Jill, instructed by Jill in the NCCP coaching course, or enjoyed the company and hospitality of Jill and Ken.

 

Jill has been a member of the Canadian Masters Weightlifting Federation since 1990 and has served in the weightlifting community in various capacities; locally (President and coach -Blue Mountain Weightlifting Club), provincially (technical official, President of the OWA, host and organizer of several Canadian Masters Weightlifting Championships) or internationally (International Technical Official at numerous international masters championships, organizing committee member of the 1996 World Masters, a supervisor at the 2015 Toronto Pan American Weightlifting Championships in Oshawa, Ontario).

 

Jill’s competitive participation at thirteen World Masters (the first one was in 1993), eleven Canadian Masters and thirteen Pan American Masters has elevated her into the Canadian Masters Hall of Fame with 226 points and one of our top ten inductees. Jill has also been inducted into World Masters Hall of Fame, the Pan American Masters Hall of Fame, and her own community’s Collingwood Sports Hall of Fame.

 

Jill joins her husband Ken (also a Hall of Fame member of the CMWFHCM), in achieving the stature of our Lifetime Achievement Award recipient.  The Millers continue to spread the “gospel” of weightlifting, at all levels, in their new Province of New Brunswick.  Jill and Ken were recently appointed as ITO Advisors to the CMWFHCM and serve on its Board’s Advisory Committee.

 

Jill is an admirable example of a member whose voluntarism continues to build strong professional ties between the CWFHC and the CMWFHCM. She has always been, and continues to be, a well-respected member of the international masters weightlifting community.

 

We are proud to have Jill in our community of Canadian Masters weightlifters and with the honour and respect befitting a member of her status, award her our Lifetime Achievement Award.

 

Jill, on behalf of all the members of the Canadian Masters Weightlifting Federation, our heartfelt Congratulations to you for your stalwartly contribution to Masters Weightlifting in Canada.

 

Mark A Gomes

President and National Chair, CMWFHCM
