Kenai Peninsula athletes helped Team Alaska take the most ulus and take the Hodgson Trophy at the Arctic Winter Games, held from March 6 to 11 in Nuuk, Greenland.
Alaska headed up the ulu count with 216 — 83 gold, 67 silver and 66 bronze. Yukon was next with 100 (23-41-36).
The Arctic Winter Games are held every two years and were held on the Kenai Peninsula in 2006.
In addition to offering opportunity for athletes, artists and performers, the games also recognize that in the North, friendship, cooperation and resource sharing are valued.
