EMC Sports. Rideau Canoe Club paddler Ian Mortimer followed in his brother's footsteps last Wednesday when he was awarded male athlete of the year during the Ottawa Sports Awards.

"I was surprised and I'm pretty excited to win, especially because my brother (Angus) was a co-winner last year," said Mr. Mortimer. "Going into the awards I didn't expect to receive it."
