The Athletics Manitoba Board of Directors is pleased to announce that Alanna Boudreau has been appointed as the new Executive Director of Athletics Manitoba.
Many of you may already be familiar with Alanna and her long history as an athlete, coach and sport administrator here in Manitoba. She began her career in the sport as a young high jumper on Team Winnipeg at the Manitoba Summer Games. She later went on to join Winnipeg Optimist Athletics and represented Manitoba at the Legion National Championships, Western Canada Summer Games and the Canada Summer Games, collecting medals along the way. In 2004, she was the bronze medalist at the Senior National Championships and was named to her first National Team; the NACAC U23 Championships, in Sherbrook QC.
She earned her Bachelor of Arts in the Faculty of Kinesiology from the University of Western Ontario; where she competed as a Mustang for 5 years, winning 5 consecutive USport medals in Triple Jump (2 Bronze, 2 Silver and a Gold).
Alanna has been involved with the WCSG and CSG programs since 1999, missing only the 2007 WCSG in Edmonton AB as she transitioned away from competition, returning in 2009 as a Manager and subsequently as a Coach. She was the Associate Head Coach at last summer’s Canada Games here in Winnipeg.
Along with her new responsibilities in the Executive Director role, Alanna will also continue in her role as Provincial Jumps Coach.
The Board is excited to have someone with her intelligence, energy, knowledge and experience to lead our PSO. Alanna will be immediately embarking on a process to find additional staff to support our programs.
