AWG opening ceremonies

NWT athletes joined thousands of others from across the circumpolar world at the Canada Games Complex in Whitehorse Sunday to open the 2012 Arctic Winter Games. Following fanfare truly befitting a Northern celebration, the Winter Games were officially open.

Contingents travelling to the Arctic Winter Games are participating in a relay this year, but participants are not carrying a burning torch as one might typically expect. A song relay to develop a compilation video for the Arctic Winter Games' theme song was launched last March, and made its way through all nine of the participating regions.
