Arctic Winter Games Part 3

Long-time readers of my blog (all 6 of you) and fellow Northerners will know of the Arctic Winter Games that ran all last week in Yellowknife and finished up yesterday. Team Nunavut won 67 medals (ulus), 15 gold, 27 silver and 25 bronze. Our humble Arctic Bay contingent won 4 silver and 3 bronze ulus (hope I counted that right). Good job guys! Arctic Bay sent about 5-6% of the athletes yet you won a little over 10% of the territory's medals. Fantastic accomplishment!
