OTTAWA —It will be a busy spring for Own the Podiums new director of summer
sport. Stephon Gilmore Jersey . Mark Hahto has just
three months to get up to speed on his new position before the start of the
London Olympics. Hahto, who spent the last five years as Swimming Canadas chief
operating officer, was named to the position Monday by OTP. “I think that my
learning curve and the amount of research that Ive got to do in the next little
while is going to be really quite high but Im ecstatic about the opportunity,”
Hahto said in an interview. Hahto, who begins his new position June 1, will fill
a vacancy that was created last January when Anne Merklinger was named OTPs
chief executive officer. He plans to immerse himself in the summer
high-performance culture while working with OTP advisers, technical specialists,
Sport Canada and national sport governing bodies. While plans for London are
essentially already in place, Hahto will soak up everything he can this year
with an eye to the 2016 Games in Rio. “Im really trying to develop some great
relations and trust amongst the various sports so that when we actually leave
London, were actually leaving running and we know exactly what we need to do,”
Hahto said. “I think that if I can accelerate that process, its only going to
lead us to better performances by the time we get to Rio.” Hahto will also bring
funding recommendations to the senior management team, lead annual reviews, and
develop new policies and programs designed to achieve excellence at the Olympic
and Paralympic Summer Games. Before joining Swimming Canada, he served as
executive director of Swim B.C. after spending over 20 years in a variety of
coaching roles with swimmers from across the country. “Mark is an exceptional
talent whose background in working with elite athletes, business acumen and
strategic leadership skills bring immense value to Own the Podium as we continue
to deliver the resources Canadian athletes need to excel against the worlds
best,” Merklinger said in a release. “Mark will be counted on to play an
integral role in developing the critical relationships required for Canadas
summer sport organizations, coaches and athletes, to develop more podium
performers.” OTP oversees many aspects of an elite athletes life in between
Olympic Games and works in concert with the Canadian Olympic Committee. Hahto
played a lead role in Swimming Canadas development and implementation of its
Vision 2020 strategic plan. Its mandate is to be among the top-six medal
producing swimming nations at both the 2020 Olympic and Paralympic Games. “We
are very excited for Mark in his new venture. He will be dearly missed at
Swimming Canada, but our loss is a tremendous gain to the whole sporting
community,” said Swimming Canada CEO Pierre Lafontaine. “When Canada wins,
swimming wins.” OTP was established five years out from the 2010 Winter Olympic
Games in Vancouver. It was a $117-million plan designed to help Canadian
athletes win more medals than any other country at their own Games. Canada
finished third in the overall medal count but won the most gold at 14, which was
a record for a single Winter Games. Canada also won 19 medals, including 10
gold, in the Paralympic Games. Not so strong in summer sport, Canadas goal for
London is more modest. It is to finish among the top-12 countries in overall
medals and among the top eight in the gold medals at the Paralympics. Merklinger
was OTPs director of summer sport under former CEO Alex Baumann, who stepped
down Oct. 1 to take a similar position in the New Zealand sport system. Thurman Thomas Jersey . Walker caught a

became the player Los Angeles Dodgers fans love to hate after he beat out
Matt Kemp for the NL MVP award last season.Ace Walker is definitely the most
comfortable at home. The Goldeyes starter went seven scoreless innings as the
Goldeyes (7-3) beat the Amarillo Sox (6-5) 4-3 in Winnipegs home opener before
7,422 fans at Shaw Park. After four scoreless innings, the Goldeyes scored twice
in the bottom of the fifth inning to take a 2-0 lead with a two-RBI single from
Price Kendall. Winnipeg added another run in the sixth off a Ridge Carpenter
ground ball that scored Luis Alen from third. The Goldeyes then took a 4-0 lead
in the seventh inning when a grounder from Matt Cusick went between the legs of
Amarillo third baseman Matthew Tucker and Price Kendall trotted home from second
bbase. Ryan

. . Things got a little hairy for the
Goldeyes in the ninth when Amarillo scored three runs, but Nick Carr was able to
work out of the jam and left the tying run on third base. Walker, who allowed
just one hit, picked up his first of the season. He is now just four strikeouts
away from passing Rick Forney for the all-time Goldeyes strikeout record with
314 Ks. Amarillo starter Chuck Lofgren suffers his first loss of the season. The
Goldeyes and Sox play the middle game of this three-game set Wednesday night at
Shaw Park. Winnipeg will send Chris Salamida (0-0, 4.00) to the mound. Amarillo
will go with Justin Garcia (0-0, 3.86). ’ ’ ’
