According to the University of Calgary Dinos website on Tuesday, swimmer Fiona Doyle was named the University of Calgary Dinos female athlete of the year and football player Mercer Timmis was named the University of Calgary Dinos male athlete of the year at a ceremony at the Olympic Oval in Calgary.

Doyle won six medals at the Canadian Interuniversity Sport National Swimming Championships in Toronto including a gold medal in the women's 100m breaststroke.

Do not be surprised if Doyle will represent her native Ireland at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. This past year Doyle set a national record in the women's 100m breaststroke at the 2013 Summer Universiade in Kazan, Russia (1:07.66) and in the women's 200m breaststroke at the 2013 World Aquatics Championships in Barcelona (2:30.49).

Timmis meanwhile was named the Canada West most valuable player in football. A running back, Timmis led Canadian Interuniversity Sport with 1157 rushing yards and 19 touchdowns. The Dinos advanced to the 2013 Vanier Cup final before losing 25-14 to the University of Laval Rouge et Or.

The Dinos meanwhile announced their 2014 schedule for football on Tuesday and will start their season on September 5 at McMahon Stadium against the University of Alberta Golden Bears.
