The OES Flash Women’s Basketball team is heading to Turin, Italy for the 2013 World Masters Games, August 2 – 11, in hopes of a gold medal finish. The team: (back row – left to right): Julie Allen, Nancy O’Shea, Marty Day, Colleen Jordan, Kim Rau, Cathy Holowitz; Front Row: Lynn Sebastien, Sandy Perryman, Linda Russell (President of OES), Barbara Ball, is made up of eight Londoners and players from Hamilton and Waterloo.
OES Flash is a group of fine athletes; some of whom have been playing together for twenty to thirty years. They all share the love of the game of basketball and each other’s friendship. These ladies hold a great deal of wisdom and experience having captured two medals at the World Masters in previous Games. In 2005 they won a bronze medal in Edmonton, Alberta, then four years ago, OES Flash captured the gold medal in Sydney, Australia. The team is greatly appreciative for the sponsorship they received from GoodLife Fitness and OES Scoreboards.
OES wishes the team the best of luck in their tournament and hope they bring home another medal!
