TT NORTH No Comments

Table Tennis North is very excited to announce that our very own Thor Gohl will be the Sport Chairperson for Table Tennis at the 2018 South Slave Arctic Winter Games.

“Thorsten brings an energy and enthusiasm to all of his work,” states Todd Shafer, General Manager 2018 South Slave Arctic Winter Games. “We look forward to having him join our team and help us create a truly memorable experience for all the Games participants.”

Greg Rowe, President 2018 South Slave Arctic Winter Games says “Thor’s colorful personality and passion for Table Tennis is contagious, he has inspired athletes from across the NWT to want to join this sport, and we are excited to have him directly involved with the 2018 Games.” 

You can definitely hear the excitement in Thor’s voice “This is a wonderful opportunity and I am sure that we will have a great Table Tennis event at the 2018 South Slave Arctic Winter Games in Fort Smith.” Thor brings not just the experience of 3 years in the Northwest Territories with him, but also being part of major National and International Table Tennis events. “Yes, I have seen a lot of major Table Tennis events in the World, including the 2016 Arctic Winter Games. This will help me to make this the best event yet! Our legacy for the 2018 Games has already started with clinics in the smaller communities and the upcoming 2016 Territorial School Championships in Yellowknife. Maybe we can even bring a big event in the Territories prior the the Arctic Winter Games.”

Everything seems to be possible and we are looking forward to it. Congratulations Almighty Thor!

Ask any competitive athlete from the North about the legacy of the Arctic Winter Games and the answer will always be one of lifechanging influence, says Betsy Mawdsley, a former biathlete from Fort Smith who has competed on the national and international circuits.

“I don’t think you can find an athlete from the NWT who was successful who didn’t come out of Arctic Winter Games,” she says.
