Participants in the first week of the games endured frigid temperatures but came away with Patrick Knox’s gold medal in judo, Carrie Callahan and Alicia Wilbert’s bronze medals in judo, personal bests and provincial record-breaking times in speed skating, and Chris Doyle’s five-point effort against the Yukon in men’s hockey. They also leave with lots of great memories of the people they met and sights they have seen.
“Team PEI has a lot to be proud of,” said Chef de Mission Francois Caron. “They performed well and conducted themselves in a very well behaved manner everywhere they went. The Mission Staff have been very proud of them.”
