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
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
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.
