Vision Vancouver park board chair Sarah Blyth was honoured at the
In Her Footsteps: Celebrating B.C. Women in Sport awards
dinner Monday night,at the Vancouver Lawn Tennis and Badminton Club.
Blyth was recognized by the groups for being a “well respected woman in the male dominated sport of skateboarding.” Blyth is credited for founding the Vancouver Skateboard Coalition and initiating the development of six skate parks in the city, as well creating Skateboard Week. Blyth’s latest projects include organizing street soccer teams for both men and women, who’ve already competed in the Homeless World Cup in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and France.
At the time her award was announced, Blyth told me this would be the most meaningful honour she’s ever received due to the fact she was nominated by members of volunteer groups she’s worked with in the past. Blyth had been unaware she’d been nominated until the awards were announced. Writer: Twitter: @sthomas10
