Laura Gauthier Memorial (LGM)
The LGM is the longest running annual volleyball tournament in Nunavut and is hosted by the great sporting community of Rankin Inlet.
About Laura Gauthier:
Laura Gauthier was born in British Columbia, but lived almost her entire life in Nunavut and the Northwest Territories. Arriving in Rankin Inlet in August 1994, and spending almost three years as an employee of the government and Nunavut Tunngavik Incorporated, she was a mother to two boys and one girl before her passing in August of the year 2000.
Laura spent time at Lethbridge University and Simon Fraser University where she developed her skills and knowledge of Volleyball.
Her passion for the sport shone through throughout her life, but made an enormous impact once she returned to the north. The impact was so profound that the people of Rankin Inlet devoted an entire tournament in her honour.
She would want nothing more than for the people of the north to continue to gather and play the sport and encourage its growth.
In her words, she would often say, "Be a go getter and dig for the ball!"
The LGM is hosted annually near the end of October and is one of the most important tournaments to attend by athletes of all ages from all over Nunavut.
