Special thanks to Dave Best, Chairman of the Ottawa Sport Hall of Fame for the invitation to attend this years induction dinner. It was an honour and a trip down memory lane as five of Ottawa best athletes and builders were inducted:
Daniel Alfredsson, who played for the Senators for 17 years, was welcomed into the hall with Jeff Bean, a world championship silver medalist on the international freestyle skiing circuit, and Tina Takahashi, a female judo icon, as well as builders Bob O’Billovich, a football legend, and Barclay Frost, a veteran international/national track and field official.
The event, MC’d by the voice of the Sens Dean Brown, drew hundreds of patrons and guests including Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson.
