They call him “Flex” – and for good reason!
St. John’s curler Felix Green, a native of Middle Cove, Newfoundland and Labrador, has earned his nickname by being a versatile athlete on and off the ice.
Competing at the 1979 Canadian Games for the Physically Disabled in Vancouver, B.C., Green won a gold medal in the 100m Backstroke, a silver medal in Wheelchair Slalom, and a bronze in the 100m Freestyle.
This performance followed his 100m backstroke gold medal in the 1978 Games in his hometown of St. John’s.
Since then, he’s added wheelchair curling to his repertoire, representing Newfoundland and Labrador at the 2009, 2010 and 2011 Canadian Wheelchair Curling Championship as second on his provincial team, along with skip Joanne MacDonald, third Darlene Jackman, lead Lanie Woodfine and coach Leslie Anne Walsh
