Meet Our Athlete - Landon Broome
My name is Landon Broome, and I was born in Brandon where I also grew up. Growing up I played house league hockey and club volleyball until last year. Right now, I am boxing and hoping to go far in the sport. When I get out of high school I either want to continue with boxing, become a firefighter or a police officer.
