2011 Canada Games

Did you know Canada.. this is week 2 of the 2011 Canada Games, this year being hosted in Halifax, NS.

The Canada games run Feb 11-27 this year - a winter games event. Going by province as of today Quebec is in the lead with 78 metals, Ontario second with 49 and BC third with 48. Attendance at sporting events has been great, with many sold-out events (wish I was there!)

Events coming up in week 2 include archery, alpine skiing, badminton, boxing, cross-country ski, male curling, figure skating, female hockey, judo, snowboard, synchronized swimming, and table tennis.

The Canada Games is held every two years, alternating between summer and winter - they started in 1967 in Quebec City.

The next summer Canada Games will be in Sherbrooke, QC in 2013.
