The Alberta Sports Hall of Fame will welcome 12 new inductees this year, including six-time Olympic medallist Cindy Klassen.
Spokesperson Megan Hanson said it takes quite a bit to put yourself into consideration.
“Most of the people on this list are athletes or builders, so they’ve had a great achievement in their support, and they’ve participated in the bulk of their support while living in Alberta or training in Alberta,” she said. “Builders could be coaches, they could be supporters, they could be someone who’s helped move their sport along.”

A special ceremony will be held June 1 in Red Deer.
