(February 28, 2019 – Red Deer, AB) Team Alberta is inching towards its all-time mark for the most medals won by Alberta at a single Canada Winter Games, adding seven medals on Thursday in Red Deer, including three gold medals.

With the three gold medals earned on Thursday, Team Alberta has now surpassed the mark for the most gold medals earned by the province during a single Canada Winter Games. The previous mark was 30 gold medals, set at the 1995 Canada Winter Games in Grande Prairie, AB, the last time Alberta hosted the national, multi-sport event.

On Thursday, Team Alberta earned medals in Figure Skating, Archery, Snowboard, and Cross-Country Skiing.

To date, Alberta has earned 88 medals, just three medals short of equalizing the current record of 91 total medals, set at the 2003 Canada Winter Games in Bathurst-Campbelton, New Brunswick.

There are two full days of competition left with plenty of medal opportunities remaining at the 2015 Canada Winter Games.
