Trackletes off to Pan Am games

Five athletes who train out of Victoria qualified for Team Canada at the Pan American Junior (18- and 19-year-olds) Track and Field Championships, July 21-24 in Florida.

Only those athletes who finished first or second in their event at the National Junior Track and Field Championships at the University of Manitoba, July 8-10, made Team Canada.

Recent high school grads Adam Keenan (Lambrick Park) and Zarria Storm (Oak Bay High), both of Pacific Athletics track and field club, won gold in the hammer throw and silver in the heptathlon, respectively.

The other three are all coming off their rookie season with the University of Victoria Vikes. Jenna van Vliet will represent Canada in the women’s 1,500 metre, Ryan Cassidy in the men’s 3,000m steeplechase and Rachel Francois in the women’s 800m.
