EXPO FOR MARTIAL ARTS FANS

This weekend martial arts aficionados get their fix at the Mixed Martial Arts Expo, going on at the Metro Convention Centre.

Called a celebration of all martial arts, the event offers up instruction, seminars, demonstrations, plus a full contact muay thai fight night.

RHYTHMIC GYMNASTICS

Toronto's Alexandra Orlando is competing in the annual Corbeil-Essones rhythmic gymnastics event this weekend, her first event since her multi-medal performance at the Commonwealth Games in Australia in March.

Aisha Gerber, of Cambridge, is competing in a World Cup artistic gymnastics competition in Belgium this weekend as well. The 15-year-old Gerber also is enjoying a nice season -- third all around at the American Cup in March, with a gold medal two weeks later at Gymnix International in Montreal.

Orlando won six gold medals at the Commonwealth Games. Also on the team are Carly Orava and Stephanie Carew, both of Toronto.

OCAA

St. Lawrence Brockville will enter a team in men's OCAA soccer this season, along with George Brown in women's volleyball and Loyalist College in men's rugby.

On the flip side, touch football was cancelled after 27 years of tournament action because of a lack of participation.

The OCAA also announced at their annual general meeting that all future athletes of the year winners will receive a $500 bursary.

LEGGATT ON HAND

Over 70 of Ontario's finest junior golfers will be out Monday and Tuesday at the Magna and Beacon Hall Golf Clubs in Aurora for the inaugural TaylorMade-adidas Golf Invitational

PGA player Ian Leggatt is hosting the event. The tournament will feature only 2005 Canadian Junior Golf Association division winners.

Tee-times are 8 a.m. at Magna on Monday, then 8:30 a.m. at Beacon the next morning.
