Pilot Butte diver Reuben Ross took to the diving boards Wednesday to compete in the synchronized three-meter dive with Alexandre Despatie, taking sixth among the eight teams.
He won't be standing on the podium, but Ross can still take pride in Olympic glory.
"It was pretty tense, pretty tense," says his mother Mary Ross, speaking to News Talk Radio from London.
Two Saskatchewan Olympians are moving ahead in competition as Canada's women's soccer team make it through to the quarter final.
It was one heck of a fight back after Canada came from behind to tie the game against Sweden 2-2. And it means the team, including Saskatchewan's Kaylyn Kyle and Kelly Parker, are through to the quarter final.
But Parker did before beginning the round robin matches that they would take each game as it comes.
"We have a really difficult group and for us it will be a game by game situation," said Parker.
By now, the Roughriders are now enjoying their bye week.
It might be coming at the right time for the team as well, after blowing big leads in back to back games in the fourth quarter.
What players do during the bye week always varies from player to player, some go on vacation, others visit family and some stay in town.
"The biggest thing is they need to get healthy and they need to re-focus," said head coach Corey Chamblin.
For the second straight week, mistakes plagued the Riders leaving them with another notch in the loss column.
Two weeks ago against Calgary, it was big drops by receivers Weston Dressler and Chris Getzlaf that left fans thinking what if? Unfortunately for Getzlaf, he's a part of that question yet again this week, after a number of key drops late in the game.
"Darian threw some really great balls in the fourth quarter," said Getzlaf. "Put a lot of that on myself, and I really got to clean that up and be a finisher."
As the Canadian women's basketball team plays Great Britain this afternoon Saskatoon-based Krista Phillips will be among them.
"For me it's a dream come true, I've been dreaming of this moment since I was a kid," said the 24 year old, before she left.
This is the first time Canada has qualified to compete in basketball since 2000.
The road ahead is tough as the team plays a guaranteed five games over 10 days - they lost their first game against Russia on Saturday.
The war medals of one of Saskatchewan's most decorated WWI heroes are being sold and two men are trying to get them back for Regina.
Dave Thomson repatriates war medals to their home town, and he has access to two of Edward "Hick" Abbott's medals.
Thomson is trying to acquire two rare medals Abbott won in WWI before he was killed in action -- his British war medal and his Military Cross and Bar.
The Saskatchewan Roughriders coughed up a 19-point lead in the fourth quarter to lose 35-34 to the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
The Riders rolled through the third quarter building on their 13-7 halftime lead to go up 32-14 into the final quarter. But just like the week previous when they gave up a 17-point fourth quarter lead to Calgary, something changed in the final 15 minutes.
"You can't do that in the CFL," said defensive end Brent Hawkins. "Any team come back at any given moment."
It's a re-match of week one at Mosaic Stadium, as the Roughriders host the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (4p.m., TSN).
It was the opening night for the CFL when the Riders beat up the Ti-Cats 43-16, sending shock waves across the country. However, much has changed for both teams since that game. Saskatchewan hasn't come close to matching that kind of offensive out put, and Hamilton has scored at least 36 points a game since.
It's almost like a homecoming weekend for some members of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
Receiver Andy Fantuz, quarterback Henry Burris and kicker Luca Congi all coming back to the city where they once played. It's certainly not the first time Burris has come back to Mosaic Stadium, but it is a first for Fantuz, who left Saskatchewan for Hamilton in the off season .
