Athletes from Telemark Nordic Club representing the City of Kelowna are winging their way home today following a jam-packed week of international competition at the Children’s Games. Led by our very own Lorraine Friesen, Kelowna athletes from Hockey, Cross Country skiing and Biathlon formed a very strong delegation of young athletes who now have a lifetime of memories to cherish and share as well as many new friends from across the globe. Many thanks to Coaches Dave Urness (Cross Country), John McNern (Biathlon), Rob Fershau and Ben Achtem.

Telemark athletes sharing a victorious moment together. (L-R) Kaelin Urness, Sofie Steinruck (1 Bronze, 1 Silver), Timur McNern (1 Bronze, 1 Silver, 1 Gold), Enzo Fershau and Nathan Achtem. Way to to Team Telemark!
Go Timur. Go Enzo! Go Team Telemark! Go Team Kelowna!
