2010 Arctic Winter Games Officially Underway with Sold Out Opening Ceremonies

The 2010 Arctic Winter Games are underway, in the Southern-most community to ever to host this biennial international celebration of sport and culture. Opening Ceremonies for the 21st set of Games were held Sunday, March 7 in Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada.

Opening Ceremonies are the official start to the Games, which also saw the start of athletic competition today on the soccer pitch. Sport results are available via the Games website. Visit www.awg2010.org for a link to the Games Event Management System (GEMS) where you can search by sport, day, team, or athlete – or view the calendar for details on upcoming competitions.

Monday, March 8 will see competition in 19 of the Games’ 21 sports, as well as the start of FREE Lunchtime Cultural Performances. Each of the nine international contingents will share the cultures of their homelands as they perform alongside local talent, Monday through Wednesday, 12:00-1:30 at Prairie Mall, Second Street Theatre, and the Games Trading Post.

For Games participants, the journey continues with six more days of athletic competition, social interaction, and cultural exchange before Closing Ceremonies, Saturday, March 13.
