Mary Carter didn’t let the mud stop her from winning a fantastic Silver medal at the 2017 World Championships of the International Federation of Sleddog Sports held in Poland in November.
As seen in the photo Mary gritted her teeth and triumphed in the ‘6 dog Rig pure breed’ race despite being splattered in mud from head to toe, whilst husband John persevered to take Bronze in the ‘8 dog Rig pure breed’.
CSJ’s Ceri Rundle says, “We’re so proud of all the handlers’ achievements at both the 2017 World Sleddog Association World Championships in Italy and the IFSS World Championships – with dogs fuelled by our CP30, Salmon Oil and STORM® Canis! everyone did incredibly well……
John Carter had already done a brilliant job at the WSA World Championships to win Gold in the ‘8 dog Rig pure breed’ whilst Vickie Pullin had pulled out all the stops to get the Silver medal in the ‘Bikejoring Women Elite’ - also going on to take Bronze in the ‘2 dog Scooter pure breed’ – before travelling to Poland.
Once there at the IFSS World Championships, Ben Robinson beat the exhausting conditions and strong competition to bring home a wonderful Gold medal from the ‘Canicross Mens Elite’ race.
With Vickie Pullin also getting a Bronze medal in the ‘2 dog Scooter pure breed’ and 5th, 6th and 9th in 3 other disciplines, young Jada Amoah coming 11th in the ‘Canicross Womens Junior’ and Danny Fitzgerald coming back from injury to get 19th in the ‘Bikejoring Mens Elite’ races, we couldn’t be happier for them all and send them huge congratulations!”
