Heralded by ICG President Torsten Rasch as "The best
International Children's Games ever!", the 7th International
Children's Winter Games came to a close. We have returned home and
we all should be proud of our athletes who not only exceeded ours
and their own expectations but also represented Waterloo and Canada
exceptionally well. Not only did we reinforce the strong reputation
Canadians have all over the globe but we came home with a Gold and
Jakub Smal and Bridget Le Donne took home the gold medal in
figure skating ice dance with 2 brilliant performances.
Dylan Leidl teamed up with a young girl from Cleveland, USA and
a young boy from Barcelona, Spain to take home the silver medal in
the speed skating Mixed Delegation Team Race. This event is exactly
what the International Children's Games is about, mixing athletes
together, boys, girls, countries with some members not even
speaking the same language.
