Langford Mayor Stew Young plans to bring Boxing B.C. on Bear Mountain.
The plan is to get a provincial facility there to join other national team athletes already training there. Bear Mountain is home to Golf Canada’s centralized development program and the Canadian mountain biking team that trains there for part of the year. The boxing facility would be in the same complex as the Pacific Institute of Sport Excellence (PISE) that the Canadian Sports Institute plans to build.
“It will be a local B.C. boxing storefront where people can come and train and it gives them an opportunity to train with other Olympic athletes,” Young said.
