The 2017 World Eskimo Indian Olympics came to an end over the weekend at the Carlson Center.
The Final day of Competition saw the One foot high kick preliminaries in the morning and the finals at night.

In that event the athlete must jump with both feet, kick the ball with one foot, then land on the same foot that they used to kick the ball, and then maintain their balance.
The morning also hosted the Arm Pull and Ear Weight competitions.
The Evening saw the Parade of Athletes and Dancers.
There was also a Dance performance and the Winning Indian Dance Group was named.
The Finals for the Men's Blanket Toss, High Kick, Ear Weight, and Knuckle-hop then led to the closing of this year's games.
Governor Bill Walker even made an appearance to thank the Volunteers, athletes, and fans who made the event possible.
The Celebrations then went late into the night to say goodbye for another year as the 2017 World Eskimo Indian Olympics officially came to a close.
