Record setter

Brett Favre has added a few more records to his overcrowded resume. Favre completed a career-best 88 per cent of his passes for Minnesota against Seattle on Sunday. He was replaced by Tarvaris Jackson late in the third quarter with the Vikings leading comfortably. Favre went 22-for-25 to also set Minnesota’s single-game franchise record for completion percentage. Randall Cunningham held the previous mark, 84 per cent in 1998 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Favre also had his 22nd career four-touchdown passing game, passing Dan Marino for most in NFL history.


Athlete of the week

Keegan Soehn of the Red Deer Thunder Country Gymnastics and Trampoline Club had a solid performance at the world age group championships in St. Petersburg, Russia. Soehn had a pair of top-five finishes, taking fifth in the men’s double-mini trampoline (DMT) and teaming with Sebastien St. Germain of Montreal to take fourth in the synchronized trampoline. Soehn was seventh after the qualifying in the DMT but moved up two slots in the final, earning 69.000 points, just 1.6 out of third place.
