-Caitlin Irwin with her gold medal from the Lake Louise Loppet which was on Sunday-
Pete Irwin is one of our regulars who posts trip reports(under “Pete”). He is also the father of two young skiers, Caitlin and Megan, who won gold medals in the Lake Louise Loppet on Sunday.
It’s great to see all the parents who take their children skiing and encourage them to participate, whether they win or not.
Congratulations to Caitlin for her win in the 2K Girls 9-10 age group with a time of 10:28
There’s a story which goes along with Megan Irwin’s win (See the photo at the side):
Megan skied the whole way with her two friends and training partners Finn and Alison and they were all trying to finish with the exact same times. At the finish it didn’t turn out that way and Megan was upset she didn’t tie gold with her buddy Alison. However all three had a great day at the loppet and really enjoyed themselves!
