Jesse Bachinsky & his Guide Brendan Magnan are on fire this week at the 2015 Canada Winter Games in Prince George, BC (Otway Nordic Centre).

Jesse became Manitoba’s second multi-medal winner at the 2015 Games yesterday with a silver medal performance in the 5km mass start free technique race.

Jesse & Brendan have been working very hard over the past 12 months to prepare for these Games (Brendan is also Jesse’s strength & conditioning coach). It shows!
