Team Canada's Performance at the Jubilee Games

The Jubilee Games in Dubai were filled with stories of heroic wins and heartbreaking losses, as Ismaili athletes from around the world performed at their very best and demonstrated the resilience that only high achievers are known to have.  For Team Canada, the Jubilee Games were a resounding success.  Our athletes went to the Games prepared – they had trained hard and were ready to take on the world. They demonstrated excellence in the sports that they participated, supported and cheered each other and athletes from other countries, and demonstrated the spirit of unity and #OneJamat that prevailed throughout the Games. Our athletes brought home the highest number of medals - 21 gold and 63 in total - winning the hearts of the entire Jamat.  Congratulations to all Team Canada’s athletes, coaches and team managers!

Quote of the Week

“Within our lifetimes, predominantly ‘Agricultural Societies’ and ‘Industrial Societies’ of the past have been joined – and sometimes supplanted – by what many call the ‘Knowledge Society,’ propelled by the digital revolution, and focusing on the creation and management of information. In a Knowledge Society, the most productive investments we can make are investments in education.”

Mawlana Hazar Imam, Dhaka, Bangladesh, May 19, 2008
