Jonah Hudec’s Canada Games Experience 2015

Jonah Hudec and older sister Mariah are accomplished athletes who most of you who run or tri will already know.  And if you don’t know him, now you will know who the young guy is who’s kicking your butt in the next race.  Jonah is an accomplished X-country skier, and this year made it to the Canada Games in Prince George BC.  Thanks to Jonah for this report, and sorry to be so late posting it.  We are proud of you!!

Canada Winter Games

Going to the Canada Winter Games in Prince George, BC was a great experience. The level of competition was high. Top U23 racers from all over the country were present. After the flight to the opposite end of the country I was quite tired. My first race was a 10km classic interval start. It was fun but I could feel the jet lag holding me back. I then competed in a sprint and a mass start skate race later that week. The 4x 5km team relay was my last race on a great course. It went well. Nova Scotia earned bragging rights over our rivals from New Brunswick. We finished in 9th place.

My experiences outside of competition were positive as well. I attended other sporting events including Curling, Judo, Squash, Trampoline and Figure Skating. Nova Scotian athletes were very supportive of each other. It was nice to see. I met new people and strengthened already existing friendships. The organizers and volunteers of the Canada Winter Games did an excellent job. Athletes felt welcome and events went off without a hitch. It was a pleasure to represent team Nova Scotia.
