Women Warriors on CBC

(Montreal, Quebec) --- Award-winning production house DIVERSUS is proud to announce the CBC airing of Women Warriors - a new television series which reveals the ferocious spirit and life-long sacrifice it takes to be a champion. This unique ten part series profiles one remarkable Canadian athlete each week and is scheduled to air on CBC every Saturday at 12:30 pm (ET) from November 2 - January 4, 2003. The series will also appear on WTSN - the new digital women's sports network and CFCF 12 Montreal.

Unlike conventional sports profiles, Women Warriors seeks to uncover the woman behind the athletic powerhouse. Through interviews with team-mates, friends, family and in-depth interviews with the athletes, each half hour episode embraces the accomplishments, struggles and choices which make up the world of today's elite Olympian.

Women Warriors will run on Saturdays, from 12:30-13:00PM, on the following dates:

Hayley Wickenheiser (Hockey, Nov. 2)

Bessette Engaged

Congratulations to Lyne Bessette, who quietly became engaged to long-time partner Tim Johnson shortly before the Commonwealth Games this past summer.

"It's true! Since June we've been engaged and very happy. We are thinking of trying to fit in our wedding next fall sometime. It's hard with all this racing all the time."
