Some success for area police officers at the World Police and Firefighter Games in Winnipeg.

Acting Sergeant Haley Collinson of the OPP’s Pickle Lake detachment took gold in the half-marathon, 18 to 29 age division.

She was the eleventh fastest among all women.

A team representing the Thunder Bay Police Service finished fourth in softball, losing 19-9 in the bronze medal game to a Winnipeg squad.

The team went 2-3 in round robin play to make the playoff round.

A loss to Colorado in the semi-finals brought Thunder Bay to the bronze medal game.
