Miranda Panas, granddaughter of Métis Nation of Ontario (MNO) citizen Elmer Ross, will soon be travelling to Abu Dhabi, the capital of the United Arab Emirates, to participate in the Women’s World Championship in bowling.

Panas, a kinesiology student at Brock University, has been bowling since the age of five and her dedication to the sport has made her a champion. She’s currently on both the adult and youth teams for Team Canada.

“I’m pretty excited,” she shared in a Facebook conversation. “It’s always an honour to get to represent Canada at an international event. The group of ladies that I’m going with are tremendously talented and I can’t wait to compete with them.”

In the past, Panas has travelled to competitions held in Colombia and Hong Kong and her talent has earned her awards and scholarships. She plans to participate in the United States Bowling Congress (USBC) Queens bowling event and the US Open.
