Gary Gibson, 84, to compete once more in Birkebeiner ski race

“With thousands of skiers set to converge on Edmonton this weekend for the Canadian Birkebeiner Ski Festival , 84-year-old Gary Gibson is likely to be in a category all his own.

Gibson, who is from Camrose, will race 55 kilometres in the 80 to 89 age group — a field that was actually created for him.”
