Leah Evans – Provincial Flyweight Champion Robyn Starr – National Welterweight Champion
This Sunday, March 20, at 1:30pm, on Channel 99.9FM, CBC Radio-Canada, Leah Evans and Robyn Starr of Big Tyme Boxing will be featured. The two provincial champions are part of a CBC Sports Radio special called, “Teens in Sport,” that looks at the life of teenage sport stars. They talk about what it’s like to be a teen in the sport of amateur boxing, the peer pressures they face, and what an important impact the sport has made on their lives. In their interviews both at the Junior National Championships in February and at their gym Big Tyme Fitness in Orangeville, the CBC staff describe the two as, “true ambassadors of the sport.” Be sure to dial your radios to 99.9 FM this Sunday! Also, the interviews will be accessible online at www.cbc.ca next week.
