 Full results.     Watch Andre de Grasse's 100m and check out who is first to mob him!!  Plus terrific video of 2 more of our Canadian heroes - Melissa Bishop in the 800m and Damian Warner in the 110m hurdles.   Congratulations to both the 12-13 Boys 4x100m and the 12-13 Girls 4x100m relays for their spectacular wins!   Cayla Smith ran down several women in the later stages of the race to take 5th in National 400m - 58.69.  Valda Kabia and Kira Pederson had a busy night with both running the 100m and 200m.   Valda - 200m in 24.62, 100m in 12.19,  Kira  200m in 25.48,  100m  in 12:43.   Joel Della Siega 2.01m in Mens High Jump.    Coach Rori threw the javelin 43.40m. 

Andre De Grasse has some words of wisdom for us all - "I just try to have a lot of fun when I'm competing because I know how hard it is during training.  And there are always going to be ups and downs with sports, but I have to remember to always just be motivated because I know I inspire a lot of people and I want to show them it's a fun sport.  I want to lift up the sport, especially in Canada"

 

Congratulations to our Ocean Athletes Joel della Siega and Valda Kabia for being named to the BC Team.  Joel has been named to the BC Team for Junior Nationals in Ottawa, and along with teammate Valda Kabia, to the Summer Games in Winnipeg.  Coach Rori and 2nd claim athlete* Ethan Foster have also been named to the BC Team to Summer Games. (*second claim athletes are athletes that belong primarily to one club but join a second club usually for specific coaching needs. They compete for their primary club)
