Meet Kendra Farmer and Michael Akintunde! Kendra is a 300m Huskie Record Holder, competes in several events and is a whiz at Pac Man! Michael plays a lot of sports, will be competing in long jump, broke a 50 year old Huskie record with his long jump, and plays trumpet in the Sask Band Provincial Orchestra!  

And guess what! Kendra and Michael both won gold at Canada West and are both #1 in Canada in their events right now!

We wanted to know what they love about living in Saskatoon, where they like to eat, and what they like to do outdoors!

Michael’s favourite things about living in Saskatoon are the access to the South Saskatchewan River and the sporting community! In the summer you can find him paddleboarding on the river, at one of the many Saskatoon festivals, golfing, and playing spike ball in the park with his friends. He’s a fan of the Hudson's Block Party and is always on the hunt for the Postal Pizza food truck

Kendra loves being outdoors in Saskatoon in all seasons. In the winter she is a huge fan of the Cameco Meewasin Skating rink, and in the summer she likes to bike along the river trails or hang out on one of the beaches! She loves summer festivals and walking around Broadway, catch her at The Yard and Flagon

We also think you should know that she beat Michael at the basketball connect four at Stoked Centre! Pretty impressive!
