The Airdrie athletes participating in the 2019 Canada Winter Games being hosted by the City of Red Deer have turned in exciting and awesome performances so far, and yesterday (February 27) they rung up more heavy metal in the form of two bronze medals.
The first of the day went to figure skater Savanna Martel and her Pre-Novice Ice Dance partner Kobi Chant from Olds who place third behind two B.C. skaters who took home gold, and another pair of Albertans from Calgary who claimed silver.
13-year-old Martel and 16-year-old Chant had been leading the competition after Monday's Pattern Dance but just fell short in the Free Dance yesterday.
The second bronze medal for Airdronians on the day went to 15 year old Teyana Roberts who beat a fighter from New Brunswick to take home her bronze.
Roberts had to take the long way through the competition when she lost in the quarter finals and had to go through the repechage for a chance at medalling.
Roberts is no stranger to winning in Judo competitions. In 2018 she captured gold at the National Championships and a silver at the 2018 Canada Cup.
