“It’s not all about winning, it’s more about doing your best; they all want you to do your best,” is how Curran Speager describes her fellow athletes on the Alberta Team.
As her Alberta teammates hammed it up on the sidelines and encouraged their fellow athletes in the Inuit Games on Monday, Nikki St. Martin was asked if she would do an interview. Not wanting to take any glory from her teammates, she asked if six of the Alberta athletes who were seated together, could all be interviewed. With a team spirit you could feel, they all agreed and cheered for a security guard named Josh.
“I really like how everyone’s really helpful. Last night we had a guy from the Alaska Team who helped us before we competed with him,” said Corey Wills.
On Tuesday, with fellow teammates and family cheering, St. Martin and Ashley Goretzky participated in the High Kick.
Everyone has their specialty in the Inuit games that range from the high kick to the arm pull and more. Although all the team mates have their specialties, Coach Tim Horsman said “they all participate and are great in several of the games.”
