Gold Medal Tournament joins Alaska Sports Hall of Fame By Klas Stolpe (JUNEAU EMPIRE - March 16, 2012)
The rebounds with elbows extended, the steals at half court, the last second buzzer beaters, the tiny village beating the city team, the young nephew screaming his village’s name at the top of his lungs during a quiet time out, the elders sitting at the baseline dreaming of their own time on the court, the grandson pointing to the heavens after making a shot, the grandfather leaning on his cane watching his children carry on what he had taught them about the game, the fry bread, the herring eggs, the smoked salmon, the gathering of a thousand moments in a single day. All these things were honored recently when the Gold Medal Tournament was inducted as the “event” of the Alaska Sports Hall of Fame Class of 2012.
