The Battle of the Sexes wrapped up at the Badlands Community Facility and Aquaplex on March 1.

Townspeople competed for their respective gender to out-do the other gender in terms of kilometres walked or swum.

"Women this year won by 65.05 kms and won last year by 487 kms. It was a tight race this year," reported Amber Leavitt, program administrator at the BCF

It's four years in a row the females have beaten the males in battle of the sexes at the BCF and Aquaplex. Men who participated this year found themselves maxing out their kilometer count at the BCF, which is 50 kms per participant. The women found themselves maxing out their kilometer count at the Aquaplex, which was 700 lengths in the pool per participant.

"They (the men) just need the numbers. They need the participants in both facilities. When they go on the track or use the bike, they need to go the front desk and track their numbers. I think it's just numbers, I think that's why the women are winning every year, because we have more participants on the women's side," explained Leavitt.

The Battle of the Sexes doesn't come without it's rewards.

"For the winning sex, for the ladies this year, we did a draw for a three month membership and it was Terry Woods who won that draw. And for the men, the losing sex, they won a one month membership and the winner for that was Eric Doucette," reported Leavitt.
