CHARLOTTETOWN (GNB) – Fredericton’s Dexter Richard and Eric Davis struck gold on Monday, Feb. 20, in the men’s synchro trampoline, earning Team New Brunswick’s first medal of the 2023 Canada Winter Games in Charlottetown, PEI.
Richard and Davis’s gold medal is Team New Brunswick’s first-ever Canada Games medal in trampoline.
“I am so happy to be receiving this medal, we worked hard for it,” said Davis.
Richard and Davis finished in first place ahead of Saskatchewan and Alberta respectively to claim gold Monday evening.

Tuesday’s action will also feature biathlon, women’s curling, gymnastics, men’s hockey, long track and short track speed skating, ringette, table tennis and wheelchair basketball.
