Meet Jed Mitchell, Team NT’s first medallist at AWG 2018

Jed Mitchell won Team NT’s first ulu of the 2018 Arctic Winter Games on Monday. Then he decided to switch sports.

Only at the Arctic Winter Games do medallists immediately contemplate a different sport for next time. Jed says he’s interested in trying futsal in 2020, but he’ll keep his current sport – snowshoeing – as a backup.

Ollie reached Jed by phone in Hay River after he took silver in Monday’s snowshoe races.
