Day One Update - February 22, 2018


Let the Games Begin!


The 2018 BC Winter Games are officially underway!  Over 1700 participants were welcomed to Kamloops during an energetic Opening Ceremony at the Sandman Centre. 

2014 Olympian and BC Games alumna Elli Terwiel who grew up in Kamloops spoke to the athletes about the journey from the BC Games to the Olympics. "My experience at the 2002 BC Winter Games gave me a taste of what competing on the big stage would be like.  Every athlete's story is different, today you are adding a chapter in your journey to the Olympic Games.  You are here because you are each excellent at what you do, so have confidence, absorb the experience, and make friends with your competitors."

“Kamloops is ready to host the 2018 BC Winter Games and we are excited to welcome BC’s athletes, coaches and officials to the Tournament Capital of Canada,” said Niki Remesz, President, Kamloops 2018 BC Winter Games.
