Arctic Winter Games Part 2

I didn't get a chance to check the medal standings last night as I had dozed off. As of this morning, Team Nunavut has 16 medals (2 gold, 7 silver, 7 bronze). Arctic Bay athletes picked up a silver and a bronze yesterday in the Snow Snake event, bringing our contribution to the territorial medal haul to 4. I'm not all that surprised that our athletes have performed so well in these events since I see kids practicing them all the time through a large part of the year. So......four of Nunavut's 16 medals are from Arctic Bay...not too shabby!
