Inuvik club skaters Braeden Picek and Dalton McLeod celebrated a one-two finish as the NWT put six ulus on the board in the team’s first finals at the 2018 Arctic Winter Games in Fort Smith.
Picek beat McLeod to gold in the junior male 1,000m final, while Grace Clark and Daphne Cloutier collected silver and bronze for the territory in the women’s equivalent.
Seigna Hult-Griffin and Luke Dizon were both bronze medallists in the juvenile 1,000m races.
