EDMONTON – Large spent the first two weeks of March representing Canada in cross-country skiing at the FISU Winter Universiade in Krasnoyarsk, Russia and returned home from a 36-hour travel journey with enough time to sleep four hours before it was time to board a bus with the Griffins to Calgary for the ACAC Indoor Track Championship.

Understandably fatigued heading into the event, she showed what an incredible athlete she is by winning four medals and earning the most points of any female athlete at the meet.

With a gold in the women’s 1000 metres, a silver in the 1500, a bronze in the 600 and another silver as a member of MacEwan’s 4x400m relay team, Large was named the ACAC Female Indoor Track Athlete of the Year.

Her performance was a major reason why the Griffins won their fourth-straight ACAC women’s team championship (and fifth of the last six years).
