The 2014 Alberta Summer Games wrapped up Sunday, with the Calgary zone walking away with the award for most medal points.

Roughly 2,600 athletes and coaches from across the province competed in 15 different sports during the games, which have been held since July 24 in Airdrie.

At the closing awards ceremony on Sunday, three awards were handed out based on regional performance in the events.

The Alberta Cup, awarded to the zone that achieves the most medal points, went to Calgary, which also won the award in 2012.

The Minister's Cup, awarded to the zone showing the greatest improvement from one games to the next, went to Blackgold/Yellowhead.

The Spirit of Sport Award, awarded to the zone that best demonstrates the spirit of fair play, sportsmanship, team spirit and co-operation, went to Peace Country.

It took two years of preparation and planning to hold the games in Airdrie.

The next Alberta Summer Games will take place in Leduc in 2016.
