Murray in Sochi for Paralympics’ first game Saturday vs. Sweden
SOCHI, Russia — Gravenhurst’s Graeme Murray has hit the ice in Sochi and is ready to begin tournament play Saturday against Sweden in Team Canada’s first game of the Paralympics to defend their 2010 gold in Vancouver.
Canada’s National Sledge Team were the first Canadian athletes to arrive in Sochi last Friday, for the Paralympic Games, to be held March 7 to 16.
The sledge hockey players moved in to the coastal athletes’ village Saturday.
And they held their first practice later that day at Shayba Arena, where the veteran Canadian defenceman Murray — #29 — was on the ice with his teammates.
Murray’s mom Bernene Jones and some family members are heading over to Russia for the Games this week.
