Nine Yellowknife skiers raced their hearts out at the Canada Winter Games this week in individual start, sprint and mass start races.
Team NT cross country skiing is made up of Jack Panayi, Jack Kotaska, Donny Boake, Nicolas Bennett, Rae Panayi, Kea Furniss, Ruby Pigott, Ella Kokelj and Clair Littlefair. Coaches supporting NT skiers include Head Coach Sheena Tremblay as well as Kevin Durkee, Stephen Dunbar and Mike Argue.
While conditions were challenging for some, race days have resembled home with temperatures in the low teens; perfect conditions for speedy NT racers who have raced competitively with athletes from across the country.
The games closed out with mixed relays on Saturday. What a week!
