The 518 is full of amazing athletes with great stories. From the middle schools to High Schools to the Colleges and even Rec leagues, people are playing great and doing good in the community. Thanks to our friends at Catseye Pest Control we get to take a few minutes each week to celebrate these athletes and recognize them on the show.

Nominate a Local athlete you’d like to see recognized today by clicking HERE. Remember we want to hear about ANY local athlete that impresses you.

This week's winner is Jessica Jean and here's her nomination.

She is 20 years old and only 5ft tall and she's the Canadien weightlifting Champion and she lives here now and two weeks ago she won the American Open in Orlando. Her dream is to compete in the 2020 Olympics and her coach thinks she definately will. She bakes cupcakes to support her funding for the competitions and they are sooooo delicious! Please look her up on FB. Look for Jessica Jean and look her up on Instagram. She posts lifting videos and pictures. Look for Jessica_lifts. You'll be amazed!!! She really does need exposure so hopefully she can come in and tell you her story. She's very humble. She was born in St. Lucia. Thank you so much and I promise you'll be blown away by her and her heart warming story of what she's been through to get to this point. Thank you so much, Mike Corazzini
