Growing up in Saskatoon and standing under six-feet tall to this day, Michael Linklater may not have the typical story of a professional basketball player, but that’s never discouraged him from following his dream.
Now 36 and a member of the Saskatchewan Rattlers of the newly-formed Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL), Linklater has been named the new face of Nike’s N7 sneaker and athletic wear collection.
Linklater called the honour “very humbling,” adding that he is it is “a tremendous honour to be recognized and to be able to help them in achieving Nike’s goal in encouraging youth to be active.”
He said he is grateful for the opportunity to offer Indigenous youth across the province a similar role model.
