Brendan Green, Northwest Territories
Brendan made a remarkable comeback on the international stage this season. After missing the entire competitive season last year, he was gradually able to return to training following two back surgeries for a herniated disc. Since then, he made steady progress towards his goal of returning to high-level competition, the crowning achievement being a spot on the Olympic Team with convincing back to back wins at the trials.
