Jesse Bachinsky (24, Kenora, ON) earns his first medal of the 2023 Canada Winter Games, a bronze in the Para Nordic standing – 2.5 km classic race.
“I’m very proud and honoured to be part of this amazing team and, it’s a real honour to be here. The course is incredibly wicked fast, and there’s lots of technical climbs and downhills, and it’s a really great place to race and train.”
“This is my third Canada Games – and I had lots of fun at the last two. I’m just gonna continue to have lots of fun here and race hard, race fast. I gain experience every time I race or train and just being here, I learn new things, I meet new people, and it’s incredible and I love it.”
Accessible Sport Connection Manitoba in partnership with Winnipeg Trails Association and the Vision Impaired Resource Network host free adaptive ski nights every Tuesday at Kildonan Park Golf course from 6-8pm!
They invite persons with a disability to try skiing, snowshoeing or kicksledding. This is a chance to try adapted equipment, and meet a ski guide.
The event is facilitated by the dynamic duo of Kirby Cote and Olexsandr Korniiko! They are very passionate about creating opportunities for persons with a disability to get active.
Kirby is an athlete with a disability retired paralympic swimmer who works with Winnipeg Trails as our active aging coordinator. She is relatively new to skiing and keen to get you involved.
Olex is an athlete with a disability, who represented Ukraine at the 2014 Sochi, Paralympic games in skiing and biathlon. He has a long track record of program development and experience introducing persons with a disability to many different sports and physical activities.
You do not need to aspire to be a future paralumpian to participate. This event is super chill. Both our facilitators are passionate and dedicated to advancing access to sport AND recreation.
