The Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame announced its 2014 inductees Wednesday. This year’s list includes five athletes, three builders and the 1988 Winnipeg Blue Bombers team that won the Grey Cup.

The media event took place at the newly renovated hall of fame gallery at Sport Manitoba. Athletes Wanda Guenette (volleyball), Connie Laliberte (curling), Keith McLennan (lacrosse) and Heather Ruby (softball) were in attendance, along with builders Ron Brown (racquetball) and Al Kinley (baseball).

Former NBA player Todd MacCulloch and artistic gymnastics coach Lorie Henderson were unable to join the group. The 1988 Blue Bombers were represented by Chris Walby, James Murphy and Bob Cameron.

The official induction ceremony will take place on November 8.
