Highlights from March 4, 2016

  • Athletes took on the -20 degree (with wind chill) weather all in stride, and competed in snowshoe and cross country with enthusiasm and frozen smiles.
  • Figure Skating wrapped up with dozens of terrific performances in front of a thrilled and appreciative audience.
  • Team Guelph continued its hot play in floor hockey, along with strong efforts from Team Saskatchewan and Team BC.
  • A high-level speed skating clinic was attended by Special Olympics skaters from across Canada and featured instruction from special guest Catriona Le May Doan.
