Yesterday evening, viaSport was honoured to sit amongst hundreds of attendees at the BC Sports Hall of Fame Banquet of Champions to recognize a select group of BC sports heroes—the 2013 inductees of the BC Sports Hall of Fame.

The evening was filled with incredible people, inspiring stories and most importantly the celebration of sport in BC. Leading up to the ceremony, viaSport was also lucky to meet a few of the other inductees and learn a little bit more about the history behind this incredible honour.
