  • It was through disappointment in one sport that Cindy Klassen found tremendous success in another, ultimately becoming one of Canada’s most decorated Olympic athletes.

    At 17 years old, Cindy tried out for the 1998 Canadian Women’s Olympic Hockey Team but was not chosen, and that’s when she followed her parents advice and traded in her hockey skates for speed skates. In 1999 she moved to Calgary to chase her Olympic dream. She quickly climbed the ranks and in 2002 she won her first Olympic medal, a bronze in the 3000 metres at the Salt Lake City games. Four years later Cindy would make Canadian Olympic history, becoming the only Canadian to win 5 medals in a single games, claiming a gold, two silver and two bronze in Turin. This earned her the prestigious honour of being named Canada’s flag bearer for the closing ceremonies. Cindy enjoyed equal success on the world cup circuit, winning 115 international medals in her 15 year career, including 46 gold. Cindy was named Canada’s Female Skater of the year four times for long track speed skating.

    Cindy has passed on her values of strong character and work ethic throughout her career. She has worked with numerous charities to advance women’s sports in other countries. She is a role model on and off the ice, working to provide girls and women opportunities to participate in sports.

    Todayville is proud to have produced the video profiles of this year’s Inductees.  Learn more about the 2018 inductees here.

    Since it’s inception in 1957, hundreds of Albertans have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.  We invite everyone to join us in this celebration of both new Inductees and returning Honoured Members, and their lasting impact on sport in our province.  If you would like more information on the Induction Banquet or to order tickets, please call (403) 341-8614.

  • December 3, 2019

    The Alberta Sports Hall of Fame presents their 2019 Inductees; three athletes, three builders, one team and three Award recipients. These ten Albertans will have their legacies in sports preserved and celebrated by all of Alberta for generations to come. The Inductees will become official Honoured Members of the Alberta Sports Hall of Fame at the Induction Banquet taking place May 31, 2019.

    The inductees include athletes who are Olympians and World Champions, builders who have dedicated endless hours to develop their sports, a team who knows the meaning of teamwork, and a pioneer who has partaken and watched his sport evolve throughout the decades. The celebration of these inductees is a show of appreciation and acknowledgement to the growth of the sports to which they have contributed and to those they continue to inspire.

    “Today, we recognize those who have inspired us through their accomplishments in sports in Alberta and throughout the world. The Class of 2019 Inductees have demonstrated their dedication, skills and commitment to their sports. We look forward to celebrating their accomplishments at the 2019 Induction Banquet on May 31st in Red Deer.”

    The Alberta Sports Hall of Fame and Museum hosts an annual Induction banquet each year in Red Deer, Alberta. More than 600 people from across the provinces and the United States attend this gala event to honour Alberta’s great athletes, sport builders, pioneers, and media personnel.

    At this prestigious event, several extraordinary Albertans that have made an impact on sport in our province, country, and around the world are honoured. The event not only honours these great Albertans but it recognizes the importance of sport in our lives and communities.
