Amazing Wine to celebrate Amazing People
By Trevor Pritchard, CBC News
Kyle Slingerland knows his chances of becoming an Olympian one day just got a little bit better.
"Yeah, honestly, it's definitely something to work for. It's just another sport that you can make it at," said the 14-year-old Ottawa basketball player before stepping onto the Lansdowne Park courts Sunday for a game of 3-on-3.
Slingerland was one of hundreds of players, young and old, who showed off their crossovers and fadeaways at the day-long tournament organized by local charities Ausome Ottawa and Hera Mission.
The tournament comes at a fortuitous time for fans of the fast-paced, free-flowing sport: In mid-June, the International Olympic Committee added 3-on-3 basketball to the 2020 Tokyo Olympic program in an attempt to give the games a more youthful appeal.

Delicious tastes of apple, pear and warm spices fill the glass. Aged in French oak barrels to create a medium bodied smooth and crisp wine that will complement many foods from roasted chicken to a seafood feast… or simply enjoyed while unwinding with friends.
Amazing Wine Cabernet Franc VQA 2013
Stunning red in colour with juicy tastes of red plums, raspberry and blackberry laced with a hint of smoke and ground pepper. This is a medium bodied wine ready for anything off the BBQ, gourmet pizza, hearty stew…or open when friends drop by.
