Black Jack skiers finish strong

The BC Nordic team won a bronze medal in the men’s relay at the Canada Winter Games on Saturday.

The Black Jack laden BC Nordic team topped off its week at the Canada Winter Games in Prince George with a podium finish on Saturday.

Four of the five BC Nordic team members – Colin Ferrie, Julien Locke, David Palmer and Geoffrey Richards –  are from the Black Jack ski team and those four skiers would team up on Saturday to win bronze in the final event of the competition, the Team Relay.

The 4X5-kilometre event saw the B.C. Team finish in 49 minutes, 50.1 seconds, just behind Ontario and Quebec teams that took first and second place respectively in the relay in 48:14.90 and 48:58.40.

The finish follows Colin Ferrie’s gold medal performance in the men’s 1.5 km classic sprint on Tuesday, and Rossland’s David Palmer bronze medal win in Thursday’s 15 kilometre free-ski, in which teammate Geoffrey Richards placed fourth.

Team BC finished its final day of competition in the 2015 Canada Winter Games on Saturday by winning another 12 medals including, two gold, six silver, and four bronze, bringing the host province’s total medal count to 88.

BC finishes in third place with 22 gold, 33 silver, and 33 bronze, while Quebec topped the standing with 141 medals, 62 gold, 39 silver and 40 bronze, and Ontario came second with 112 medals, 47-40-25.
