Eight Telemark skiers and three coaches are off to The Special Olympics National Winter Games in Thunder Bay Feb 26 to 29, 2020.
Roy Stephens and Dimitri Konstant are excited to attend their first national games. They, and all of Team BC, will be supported by the veteran leadership of Tracey Melesko, Maria Schmitke, Francis Stanley, Glen McIntyre, Jordan Lige and Kelsey Wyse who have experienced success at multiple National and World Games. To prepare for Games, the athletes started dryland training in the spring and have been training on snow since mid November. All of these athletes competed in the Apple Loppet and many have competed in several generic races this year as part of their training. The athletes will be joined by coaches Garth Vickers, Annabel Stanley and Ray Huson. We wish the team well at The Special Olympics National Winter Games.
