Emily Suchy at the BC Winter Games

 

Remeber Emily Suchy? She is a new member of the Revelstoke Nordic Ski Club this year.

After her very first season sit skiing, Emily attended the BC Winter Games this past weekend in Vernon.  She was one of four para athletes and one of five athletes from the Revelstoke Club.  Over the weekend she earned herself two gold meals (although she was the only one in her category – again – so we knew she’d medal) but they were pretty cool to wear non the less.  Emily plans to do a couple more low pressure loppets to round off her first year.  She also had Nationals 2013 her next goal and REALLY hopes she is able to face some real competition.  Live It! Love It! couldn’t be more proud of Emily’s drive and accomplishments. Go Emily Go!

These are some photos of Emily’s experience at the Games:
