NWT Sport Hall of Fame
Averaging 10.5 km/hour and 60-65 strokes per minute the 1967 Centennial Voyageurs of the Northwest Territories paddled their way across Canada as part of the 1967 Centennial Voyageurs Canoe Pageant. The team was made up of ten men from across the Northwest Territories who exemplified the skills needed in all sports. To paddle a 25-foot canoe in a Centennial canoe race lasting 104 days technique, skill, physical strength, endurance, mental strength, courage, training, practice and fortitude were required. All ten men showcased their skills to the territory and to Canada.
