On the first day of competition in the Manitoba Winter Games, Fifteen year-old cross country skier Kate Mazur captured the gold medal in the Juvenile Girls 7.8 km classic with a time of 38:24, more than two minutes faster than the next female competitor.

Mazur comes from Erickson, Manitoba in the western area of the province, and trains at nearby Riding Mountain National Park. Mazur has been skiing since she was around four years of age and credits her father with introducing her family to skiing. 

This is Mazur’s fifth year of competitive racing and her second Winter Games experience. In 2014, she won a bronze medal. What are her thoughts when she begins to tire when racing? She finds that following her coach’s advice to “just relax” works.

Other activities that interest her are canoeing and volleyball. Mazur described the Thompson Community Ski Trail as “beautiful”.
