2024 National Winter Games - What A Week!

Team Sask

The Special Olympics Canada Winter Games Calgary 2024 came to a close on Saturday, March 2nd, 2024, and our Team Sask. athletes did an incredible job on the national stage. Walking away from the Games, Team Sask. left back to Saskatchewan on Sunday with a total of 29 medals! Congratulations and thank you to every single athlete, coach, and mission staff for making the 2024 Games a memorable experience for all.

Team Sask. (made up of 48 athletes, 9 coaches, and 18 mission staff), took part in the Games hosted in Calgary from February 27 to March 2. Athletes competed against others from all across Canada in 8 different sports: Alpine Skiing, Cross Country Skiing, 5-Pin Bowling, Curling, Floor Hockey, Snowshoeing, Figure Skating and Speed Skating. 


Let's recap the full week:

All athletes, coaches and mission staff arrived in Calgary on Monday, February 26th in the afternoon from a full day of travel and it was an early night for all. The following day, athletes had the opportunity to practice and then got ready for Opening Ceremony's. 5-time National Games athlete Daniel Fiedelleck and his curling team had the honour to be Team Saskatchewan's flag bearer for the Opening Ceremonies! With an incredible Opening Ceremony's on Tuesday evening, everyone was hyped and ready for the next 5 days of competition.

The competition days were action-packed and full of ups and downs as the athletes faced and overcame challenges, beat their personal bests, and of course, created long-lasting memories and stories. Team Saskatchewan brought home 9 gold medals, 5 silver medals, and 15 bronze medals (for a total of 29 medals). At the Closing Ceremony's, Speed Skating athlete Jordan Stevenson had the honour of holding the Team Sask. sign. It wouldn't be a Special Olympics event without a Special Olympics dance to wrap things up. Following the Closing Ceremony's, athletes participated in the "Glitz and Glam" dance to celebrate a week well-done.
