WYO’s Winter Sporting Scene is Golden

February 8, 2008

Pinedale, WY – Wyoming's winter sporting scene turns golden this weekend as the Wyoming Senior Winter Games kicks off. The competition is open to all in their "golden years," ages 50 and up.

Games spokesman Ken Konicek says the goal of the games is to encourage people 50 and older to stay active for the health of their bodies and minds.

"We're living longer and staying more active than people did 40 or 50 years ago, and so we want to offer people the opportunity to have some fun competition."

Prizes will be awarded in skiing, speed skating, snowshoe racing and the biathlon. The competition, located in the Pinedale area, is not limited to residents of Wyoming, the "Equality State." Competitors from surrounding states are expected to compete, including a woman from Utah who will participate on an ice hockey team.

Konicek says the Games will also offer health information for all.

"It's learning about nutrition and brain aging, training techniques for older athletes, interacting and then going out and having some fun on the slopes or in the hockey rink."

The games run through February 17. More information is available online at
