“I feel good,” Hannah stated in a Team B.C. release after his win in the consolation final. “Boxing wasn't too bad and I was a little tired and got a bit sloppy, but I managed to pull through. It feels so good." Hannah was coached at the Games by North Vancouver’s Dave Brett, who is also his coach (and gym owner) at Griffins Boxing Club.

The Games run Feb. 15 to March 3 in Red Deer.
