And I live right here-- walking distance up to the Canada Games gym. Elsa: Just the idea of it being Cape Breton makes you want to play. Danyelle: And a lot of people think it's excellent to have Cape Breton athletes on the team, because we've been so isolated for so long. And finally we're all getting in there and participating. Elsa: A "" ' the Cape Breton athletes don't get tx.' ,.<,' ognition they deserve, compared to the mainland athletes. They think, you know, you have so far to go, and you're way out.
