TYUMEN, March 11 (Itar-Tass) — Russian athletes have won 101 medals, including 50 gold at the Arctic Winter Games in Canada. In the team classification the Russians took the second place, after the Alaska team.
The XXII Arctic Winter Games were held in the Canadian city of Whitehorse (Yukon Territory) on March 4 - 10. Since 2006, Russia is represented in the Arctic Winter Games by athletes from Yamal. A total of nine national teams from the Arctic region countries have taken part in the sport competitions. Russians took part in the Arctic all-round events, biathlon, cross-country skiing, figure skating, mini-football, snowshoeing, table tennis.
The result of 101 medals - 50 gold, 34 silver and 17 bronze – is the highest achievement of the Yamal team in the history of its participation in the Arctic Games. In 2008, it won 92 medals (44-32-16), in 2010 - 70 (32-24-14).
The Arctic Winter Games is the world’s largest northern multi-sport and cultural event. The Games include the participation of teams from Alaska, Yukon, Northwest Territories, Alberta North, Nunavut, Greenland, Yamal, Nunavik Quebec and Sapmi. The Arctic Winter Games are a celebration of athletic competition, culture, friendship and cooperation between northern contingents. Athletic competition features sports that enjoy worldwide popularity alongside traditional Arctic Sports and Dene Games. A significant cultural component featuring visual arts, dance, ceremonies and galas with participants from across the circumpolar region is a pillar of the Games.
The Yamal athletes for the first time took part in the Arctic Winter Games in 1992 within the team of the Tyumen region. The Games were also held in Whitehorse.
