Carolyn Lindner with JP&N Editor Bernie Bellan
At the Rady JCC Ken Kronson Sports Dinner, held Monday, June 18, Carolyn Lindner (née Brandes) was chosen Jewish Athlete of the Year.


Carolyn went from being a curling rookie to a Canadian champion in just few short months – a testament to the determined spirit that’s propelled her in recent years.
At the 2017 Canadian Wheelchair Curling Championship in Boucherville, Que., Team Manitoba – of which she was a part – won the gold medal with a decisive 11-1 win over Alberta. Lindner also captured the tournament’s sportsmanship award. At the 2018 Canadian championships, Manitoba went in looking to defend its crown, and nearly did it again, coming home with silver.
After her four-year journey to redefine herself after an illness that took her legs but not her spirit, Lindner has gone all in as a curling para-athlete and one day hopes to suit up for Team Canada.
