Calling All Canadian Dwarf Athletes: We are building our 2021 Team Canada!
On August 5-12th, 2017 the World Dwarf Athletic Games was held in Guelph, Ontario, Canada.
The next World Dwarf Games will be in 2021 in Germany and in Australia in 2025. As Canadians with a strong will and the spirit for competition we would again like to be in a position to enter both individuals and teams into these World Games. The process and participation continues to be very inclusive.
To be part of the 2021 Team, to be part of the fun, to be part of history, contact us at: Contact@DwarfAthletics.ca
In 2013 Canadian athletes competed as a team for the first time showing our national pride and competed as Canadians. Our 2013 Team Canada brought back 65 metals. In 2017 we claimed 104 metals!
With the next games less than 4 years away we will keep compiling a list of Canadian athletes and volunteers. Applications can be submitted at: Team Canada Athlete and Volunteer Applications Our objective is to again field both a junior and an open team in the team sports and as many participants as possible for the individual events.
For equipment requirements each athlete needs to check the official World Dwarf Games 2021 site to ensure each athlete has the equipment required and the rules for the sports in which they are participating. For example, with soccer please have shin protectors for each athlete. (Hint: Search (Ctrl-F) for the word “equipment” within the respective PDF for more information on the equipment requirements.)
