The weather has been perfect for the event, and as a whole smiles have been seen all over town at every one of the Games’ locations.

Cale McConkey, a Prince George wrestler who was competing yesterday in his first ever wrestling tournament, says “the experience has been really fun. I won some, I lost some, I have learned a lot.”

Fellow PG wrestler Hunter McCarthy agreed, and added “this is my fourth tournament this year, and is probably the best tournament I have ever been to.” He also says that the PG Wrestling Club had a lot of first timers in the tournament that were doing very well holding their own.

McConkey also competed in the BC Winter Games in 2020 for Cross Country Skiing.

The Games’ closing ceremonies will take place today at 1:00 in the CN Centre parking lot, which will once again be closed to the public.
