Colville receives a second mural commission from Mount Allison University to paint a mural for the new Athletic Centre. Colville simplifies his approach with the inclusion of athletes on the brink of starting or finishing their athletic endeavours. They are symbolic of the past, the present and the future. Athletes considers the motto on the exterior of the building, Mens Sana in Corpore Sano, a healthy mind in a healthy body.
