Congratulations to Aisa Surusilak and his partner Aipilie Qumaluk who won gold for Ivakkak 2017 with less than three minutes behind Peter “boy” Ittukallak (partner Putugu Iqiquq) who was leading before the finish line. Ittukallak won silver, second place podium winners. Congratulations to Willie Cain Jr. and Putulik Saunders (Ivakkak 2016 champions) who still had a spot on the podium, third place bronze winners. Ivakkak 2017 is proud of our Inuit tradition of dog teaming that made our ancestors survive. Our tradition is alive and well.
Congratulations to all the teams!
