Flint wears CANUSA crown for 2012


Flint picked up its 26th CANUSA Games victory on the weekend in very convincing fashion.

Flint, host city for the 55th edition of the annual competition with Hamilton, won in 12 sports – baseball (3-0) , 10-pin bowling (112-13) , basketball (16-4), darts (88-52), gymnastics (261.58-216.3), hockey (2-1), soccer (8-5 with one tie game), softball (3-0), tennis (6-3), track and field (799-335), skeet (976-956), and flag football (6-0).

Hamilton claimed victory in swimming (599-567) and girls volleyball (2-2). Ties are awarded to the visiting team under the friendly component of the Games. The site of the games alternates each year.

Golf was also on the schedule of events but was cancelled because of rain as were some parts of the other sports.

Flint also claimed bragging rights in the Mayor’s Competition when Flint’s mayor Dayne Walling defeated Hamilton Ward 14 alderman Robert Pasuta, 175-103 in 10-pin bowling.

After the weekend, Flint leads the Games totals 26-25 with four years ending in ties.
