MEDIA RELEASE

Stakes High for Weekend Track and Field Championships

June 19, 2007, Vancouver - British Columbia’s top junior and senior athletes are set to compete this weekend, June 23-24, in Kamloops hoping to be crowned BC Champion and receive a coveted spot on the provincial Junior (ages 18-19) and Senior (ages 20-34) teams travelling to Abbotsford, BC and Windsor, ON respectively.

The slated warm weather will likely bring out good performances from BC’s many high class athletes. In the Junior category, a number of athletes competing are in contention for a place on the Canadian Junior Pan-American team, travelling to Brazil for July 6-8.

Both Javelin and Pole Vault are proving to be very strong fields for the Junior men and women. On the men’s side, Kyle Nielsen, the recent BC High School Javelin Champion and Record Holder with the personal best of 66.50m, threatens the 68.38m Junior record set by former training partner Curtis Moss. Nielsen broke Moss’s Juvenile record last year, and hopes for a repeat. Geoff Law has surpassed Canadian Junior Pan-Am team standard with a pole vault of 4.70m.

Elizabeth Gleadle, the current BC Juvenile record holder, has also exceeded the standard for javelin with her throw of 49.29m. Another promising athlete is Smithers’ Pole Vaulter Stacey Irvine, who has also met standard with a jump of 3.80m this year. IN addition, she is a BC High School Champion and Record Holder, as well as a BC Athletics Record Holder.

Other male athletes in this Pan-Am standard include Trey Henderson in the Hammer Throw, Decathlon powerhouses Reid Gustavson and Mark Chenery, 400 meter hurdler Ryan Chester, Racewalkers Inaki Gomez and Evan Dunfee, 1500m runner Justin Marpole-Bird, and Jordan Mara in the 800m.

Rounding out the female athletes in Athletics Canada Junior Pan-Am standard are Discus thrower Lara ter Laak, Sabrina Nettey in long jump, North Vancouver’s Jessica Smith in the both the middle distances, and, also in the 1500, Smith’s training partner Chantelle Groenewoud.

Canadian Junior Championships return to Abbotsford’s superb facility for the third time in the meet’s history. Abbotsford has also hosted the Canadian Senior Championships as well as the BC Summer Games and the BC Senior Games.

BC has a strong Senior component, especially in the middle distances. This includes internationally renowned 800 meter runners Gary Reed and Diane Cummins, both who hold their respective Canadian records and train out of Victoria. Geoff Martinson and Trevor O’Brien, 1500 meter runner, have also posted very competitive times this year.

Obtaining her Canadian citizenship June 26 2006, it took Lieja less than one-year to put her name in the Canadian record books. Lieja is married to Jason Tunks - Canadian discus throw record holder. Lieja and Jason met at a meet in Germany in 1999 and started dating in 2001. They married the following year. In 2006 the couple celebrated the birth of their first child, Julia.

OF PARTICULAR INTEREST TO OFFICIALS

Plan ahead! The Officials AGM will be held on October 28, in Abbotsford, at Madison’s restaurant. Details to follow.

And speaking of the AGM, those in attendance last fall were treated to a power point presentation, created by our own April Arsene, of “the season in review”, full of photos of officials in action. She has agreed to do another production, but will need you to send photos to her at arsene@telus.net.

When did you begin officiating? Please send your start year (or as close as you can remember) along with your BCA number to Kathy Terlicher at kdterlicher@shaw.ca.

The National Official Committee is honouring long time officials with recognition at 25 years, and then for each five year span after that. But they need your statistics to compile this history.

New (to us) Officials! A hearty “Welcome to British Columbia” goes out to two officials; we are fortunate to have them re-locating to our province, and look forward to seeing them at events this season.

Peter Hesketh is moving from Alberta to White Rock. He is very welcome, and look at the talents: Vertical Jumps 5 and Throws Referee 3. Peter will be in his new home at the end of May, and is already volunteering for meets.

And Peter Francis (newly promoted to Horizontal Jumps 5, congratulations) is moving from Manitoba to "somewhere near Victoria" in the near future.
