A curling three-peat for Tyler Tardi and Sterling Middleton
, along with another freestyle skiing gold for Cassie Sharpe wrapped up a stellar weekend for Team BC alumnus.
British Columbia skip Tardi (Langley) and vice-skip Middleton (Fort St. John) etched their names in the record book with their third New Holland Canadian Juniors
title a row, a feat that has never been accomplished before.
“It’s unreal the fact that this has only been done twice before and how this such a rare feat,” said Tardi of his accomplishment with Middleton. “It’s an incredible feeling and to be doing it with one of my best friends is extra special.”
Tardi and Middleton were on Team BC at the 2015 Canada Winter Games in Prince George where they won bronze. The team will represent Canada at the 2019 World Junior Curling Championships in Liverpool, N.S. this Feb. 16-23.
Sharpe, the reigning Olympic champion in half pipe, was crowned the women’s half pipe champion at the X Games in Aspen
thanks to a third run that earned her 94.00 points. It marked her third career medal at the X Games, and her second in Aspen.
