Provisional results show the BC Nordic team won a bronze medal in the men’s relay at the Canada Winter Games today. Nelson’s Julien Locke, Colin Ferrie of Kimberley, and David Palmer and Geoffrey Richards of Rossland each skied five kilometres for a collective time of 49:50.10. All four of the BC relay skiers train with the Black Jack ski team in Rossland.

The Ontario and Quebec teams took first and second place respectively in the relay in 48:14.90 and 48:58.40.

This is the third and last medal for the BC Nordic men’s team, with a gold medal won by Ferrie in the classic 1.5 sprint on Tuesday and a bronze by Palmer in the 15 km on Thursday.

The BC team currently has 77 medals, ranking third overall behind Ontario [132 medals] and Quebec [97 medals].
