Celebrating Ontario's Athletes

Friday April 16th, 2010

Last night the Ontario sports community recognized the 2009 Ontario Sport Award winners at an event in Toronto.   Congratulations to Jack Polonsky for receiving the Syl Apps Special Achievement Award.   Jack was recognized for his work in judo as a supportive martial arts experience for individuals that have sustained or acquired brain injury or other congenital challenges such as cerebral palsy and spina bifida.

Though his work and dedication in this field, Jack Polonsky has created greater awareness to the issues of brain injury and in showcasing the sport of judo with differently abled athletes.  With the Syl Apps Special Achievement Award, Jack has received honor not only for himself ... but brought honor to all of us in judo.  Congratulations once again!
