Gauri represents Canada
in Costa Rica
Naman Gauri donned the Maple Leaf at the 2019 International Racquetball Federation Junior World Championships last week in San Jose, Costa Rica.
The 16-year-old Lethbridge athlete was part of Team Canada at the event Nov. 8-16.
In the preliminary round which was used for seeding athletes in the elimination round, the Canadian squad didn’t have any podium results, but Gauri placed 17th in the U16 boys division.
He then teamed up with Nathan Jauvin of Terrebonne, Que. to place fifth in the U16 boys doubles event.
Next for several of the athletes competing at the World Junior Championships will be the Racquetball Canada National Team Selection Event in Edmonton.
