Winnipeg mother-son team eliminated on The Amazing Race Canada

  • Print

It was a sad case of Ready ... Aim ... Oops! for the mother/son team of Nicole and Cormac Foster in this week’s installment of The Amazing Race Canada, as the Winnipeg duo’s misfire in a "Yukon biathlon" challenge led to their elimination from the race.

After surviving the CTV show’s first-ever international foray, to China, the Fosters and other remaining teams made the 12,000-kilometre flight from Macau to Whitehorse, only to be met by an exhausting Road Block challenge that involved mountain biking and target shooting. Nicole took on the task, only to miss the five rifle-range target repeatedly as other competitors knocked them down and moved on to the Yukon leg’s canoe-paddle race to the finish.

In all, it took Nicole 22 attempts — each followed by a grueling bike loop — to finish the shooting challenge, long after it was apparent that they’d lost this crucial leg of the race.

"I’ve always taught Cormac never to give up," a tearful Nicole said during the episode. "And I could not give up now."

The timing of the Fosters’ elimination was particularly unfortunate, as The Amazing Race Canada’s next episode brings the remaining teams to Winnipeg.
