It’s a GO! BC Games Penticton 2016

The bus ride was a riot! Opening Ceremonies were exciting and impressive!

Racing is on!

Some have traveled all night, some had an easier bus ride but all were smiling as they arrived at the accreditation center to pick up their BC Games swag and official identification. “It’s like a mini Olympic games here, it’s awesome!” said one athlete.

This morning, as athletes arrived at Apex with the sun rising you can feel the excitement around the 104 U14 women and men coming from 7 different BC Games zones. The 53 women were first to race GS on the Juniper/Okanagan impressive run followed by 51 men. The atmosphere at the start at the moment of inspection was friendly but you can sense the athletes’ focus and attention rising.
