Last call for 2016 Arctic Winter Games

Biggest event in Greenland's history set to come to a close.

It's the final day of the Arctic Winter Games in Greenland.

Yukon heads into the last day of action with 22 gold, 34 silver, and 33 bronze ulu's which is good for second place.

The closing ceremonies are set for Friday evening local time, and Team Yukon's Paolo Gallina says all the athletes from the participating regions will march through Nuuk.

"We'll have flags and banners, people be trading uniforms, and it'll be one big contingent heading up to the closing ceremonies site." Gallina said.

"They have music and entertainment lined up for us. It'll be less formal than the opening ceremonies, so more of a celebration with music and fun."

In the hockey finals in Iqaluit Thursday night, Team Alaska won the bantam male gold, and Team Northwest Territories the junior female gold.

The hockey teams flew overnight from Nunavut to Greenland for the closing ceremonies.

Alaska leads the way with 172 ulu's, with Nunavut at 45, and the Northwest Territories at 35.
