OUR 2024 INDUCTEES

A CELEBRATION OF SPORTS

Carmen Rinke

Athlete - Boxing

Carmen Rinke

When Carmen Rinke first strapped on a pair of boxing gloves, he likely couldn’t have imagined the sport would eventually take him to the Olympic Games and to international events in East Germany, Mexico and New Zealand. Hailing from the small community of Lundbreck in the foothills of Southern Alberta, Rinke boxed from 1966 to 1982, earning six Canadian championships along the way. He was regarded as a power puncher who also had the ability to box a strategic bout when needed.

Cooney Family

The Lethbridge Speed Skating Association celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2023, and the family of Tim and Nicole Cooney and their children played an important role in helping the club achieve that milestone. The family’s arrival in Lethbridge in 2002 bolstered the club at a time when membership numbered fewer than five skaters, and when the Cooneys joined the LSSA, it doubled the club’s size.
