Gold for local Wheelchair curler

Fort St. John’s Ina Forrest (Busche) has a gold medal around her neck, after team Canada took gold in the world wheelchair curling championships in Vancouver over the weekend.

The world wheelchair championship was the very first curling competition held at the new Vancouver Olympic Centre, which will play host to the 2010 Olympic Winter Games curling competition and the 2010 Paralympic wheelchair curling competition.

According to Ina’s mother Edith, she’s been a wheelchair curler for about 3 years, after a youth spent playing every sport she could.

Congratulations to Ina.
