The Arctic Winter Games gather talent from far and wide. The heart of the games are the arctic sports, which are born from Inuit tradition. On March 5, players from Canada, Greenland and Russia took part in the 'kneel jump'.

The athletes start barefoot in a kneeling position with toes pointing behind them. They then leap forward, landing standing up on both feet. The furthest distance wins.
