The hometown crowd came out in force to cheer on Wilkie at a special viewing at the SASCU Recreation Centre as she raced her way to the gold medal in the Women's 7.5km Classic, Standing, at the 2018 PyeongChang Paralympics. "Now it's kind of developed into a sense I use my athletic ability to give back to the community by giving them something to be so proud of on the global stage and the possibilities are endless if you're willing to do the work".

The most medals they previously had was 19 medals at the 2010 Paralympic Winter Games in Vancouver. "Maybe that's the reason why we could get the gold medal", said China's skip Wang Haitao.
