The Special Olympics Westman team captured some hardware and shared a lot of fun at the Special Olympics Manitoba Winter Games in Winnipeg late last month.
At Charleswood Curling Club, Team Chambers and Team Leadbeater captured gold medals in their divisions, while Team McLaren grabbed a silver medal.
Team Chambers, which won Division 2, consists of skip Harvey Chambers, third James Almos, second Darla Cunningham and lead Tyler Yurchuk.
Team Leadbeater needed a draw to the button, which constitutes the extra end, from their skip Devin Leadbeater to win a gold medal in the Participant Division after the game was tied following six ends. The team is rounded out by Sandy Revet, Glen Skayman and Scott Madder.
Team McLaren, who competed in Division 1, is made up of skip Craig McLaren, third Chris jones, second Trent Gussie and lead Art Haggstrom.
Despite frigid conditions, Sean Strang captured a gold medal in the 25-metre and bronze in the 50-metre Participant Division of the snowshoeing event. William Martinez-Pineda grabbed a bronze medal in the 100- and 200-metre races for Division 1. And Liam Manuliak won a silver medal in the 100- and 200-metre races for Division 3.
At Billy Mosienko Lanes, Mark-Judson Davis and Shannon Bauche medalled in their respective five-pin divisions.
Overall, more than 50 athletes from Boissevain, Neepawa, Minnedosa, Brandon and other communities competed in curling, bowling and snowshoeing during the three-day event.
