City Council approved today the naming of the Goulbourn Recreation Complex Gym to be the Erica Wiebe Gym.
It comes within two weeks of Erica’s astounding accomplishment in the Women’s Freestyle 75-kilogram wrestling category, earning Canada’s fourth, and final gold medal in the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics.
The naming of the gym is in recognition of Erica’s contribution to sports and her community.
I wish to congratulate Erica and the community for this incredible recognition and also to thank Mayor Jim Watson and my City Council Colleagues for their unanimous support on my motion going forward.
An official date for the naming ceremony is pending. I will share this with the public once one has been confirmed.
