Ares is proud to announce that club member Danja Currie-Olsen placed 1st in Jr. A division at the Canadian Pentathlon National Championships in Waterloo, Ontario. Danja competed in all five disciplines for the first time ever- this was her first time riding in a pentathlon event. She was also the youngest fencer in the Senior group, and the only Albertan to compete, and she finished with solid times and no disqualifications.
Amazing job, Danja!
