Whistlerites in motion: local rugby players and cyclists break new ground

The Whistler Wolves are hosting their first rugby league tournament as Cami Bragg celebrates her first enduro victory
The Whistler Wolves are the Sea to Sky's local rugby league club.

Welcome back to your recap of Sea to Sky athletes and their exploits at home and abroad. 

It's an exciting time for local rugby fans as the Whistler Wolves are hosting their first league tournament in town on Saturday, May 27. Meanwhile, the rugby union-playing Axemen out of Squamish look ahead after a club-defining season.

Young mountain bikers have also been making an early summer splash. Cami Bragg prevailed in her first enduro race despite being a 14-year-old competing in a U19 event.

Lucas Cruz placed fifth at the most recent stop on the NW Cup tour, a race won by Squamish native Coen Skrypnek.

Earlier this month, two-sport star Wei Tien Ho claimed victory at a major enduro race just down the road. 

A dozen young local gymnasts reached the podium at the Delta Invitational.

Meanwhile, golf enthusiasts are taking to the fairways across Whistler and Pemberton. But if field hockey is more your speed, check out a new youth club in Squamish or the Whistler Field Hockey Club.
