Kelowna athletes win six medals at Apex Ski Resort

Hallie Jenkins and Isaac Athans each won two golf medals in alpine skiing at the BC Winter Games.

Kelowna athletes on the zone 2 team stepped onto the podium six times in alpine skiing last weekend at the B.C. Winter Games.

On the first day of competition at Apex on Friday, Kelowna’s Isaac Athans won gold in a 2 run combined Men’s Giant Slalom race.

With another golden performance on Saturday, Athans did not disappoint as he climbed out of a late start position to win it all in a 2 run combined Men’s Slalom race.

Big White Ski Club’s Hallie Jenkins gutted out a gold medal performance narrowly edging out the silver medalist by just .04 seconds in a two-run combined ladies’ Slalom race on Saturday under sunny skies.

In Sunday’s single slalom, Jenkins won her second gold medal, while teammate Jaxon Slaney of Big White charged the gates for a bronze finish in the ladies race.

On the men’s side Devin Blaser of the Apex Ski Club laid down a fast, clean run to earn a bronze medal in the men’s race.

Big White Ski Club’s Amy Jorgenson took a 6th in Sunday’s slalom race while teammate William Little finished 18th..

Ana Large from Apex Ski Club demonstrated promise as a first-year U14 as she raced to 6th place in GS on Friday and 10th in slalom Sunday, while teammate Nic Tonogai took a 12th in slalom.
