The most successful Canada Winter Games ever for Team Alberta came to a conclusion yesterday (March 2), fittingly in Red Deer, the Alberta city that hosted the 17-day event.  

Team Alberta amassed 100 medals during the games, 36 gold, 33 silver, and 31 bronze.  The province finished in third place behind Quebec who finished with 146 medals to top the standings, and Ontario who came in second with 105.

Athletes from Airdrie contributed to the overall medal count.  15-year-old Teyana Roberts was a double medallist with gold and silver in Judo.  

Spencer Allan, an 18-year-old para-skier captured a gold medal.  19-year-old Thomas Hulsman who competes in biathlon won a silver.

Three Airdrie competitors captured bronze medals on the ice.  Savanna Martel, 13, and her partner Kobi Chant from Olds in figure skating and Keagan Slaney and Craig Armstrong were bronze medallists in men's hockey.

Yesterday, Cochrane's Sarah Wozniewicz helped Team Alberta to a gold medal in women's hockey with a 2 - 1 win over Quebec.  Wozniewicz didn't get in on the scoring in the gold medal game but she did lead Alberta in scoring during the tournament with four goals and an assist.

Kalena Soehn, a local athlete from Red Deer who won a pair of medals in trampoline at the games was chosen to be Canada's flag bearer for last night's closing ceremonies.

The next Canada Games are in the summer of 2021 in the Niagara Region of Ontario.

In 2020, the City of Airdrie is playing host to the Alberta Winter Games from February 14th to 17th.
