Team Yukon’s 159 members left in August for the City of Saint John, New Brunswick to participate in the 2018 Canada 55+ Games. As Team Yukon participated in the games they shared the vibrant Spirit of the Yukon, and had a great time. I am sure the fun of meeting up with old friends, and making new ones was part of the excitement and the challenge of attending the Canada Games.
Team Yukon won a total of 83.5 medals (24 Gold, 28 Silver, 31.5 Bronze). The average age of participants attending the games was 68 years with the eldest being 93 years young.
Our local papers had some articles about the Games, which can be read here:
