The city of Winnipeg is once again buzzing with energy as sports venues have reopened filled up by sports fans coming from across the country to either compete or cheer on the athletes at the 2017 Canada Summer Games.

After a day of transition and a day of practice, Alberta was once again competing for gold medals in this seventh day of competition.

The first gold medal of the week for Alberta came courtesy of Emma O’Croinin, winning gold at the 1500m freestyle swimming competition.

Brady Garcia had the honor of winning Alberta’s first medal of the second week of competition, a bronze medal in Canoe-Kayak. Garcia added a silver medal later in the evening, and silver in the men’s C2 1000m race alongside long-time friend Gavin Jaeger-Freeborn.
