Sainte-Therese, QC—August 5-7—Three club athletes traveled last week to the Canadian Youth Championships in Quebec and each of them returned home with a medal.
Vikramjit Gondara brought his two years in the Youth division (16/17 year olds) to a conclusion by adding yet another gold medal to his collection. Undefeated during the year in his age division, Gondara tossed the 5-kg hammer 64.95 meters to win the event by more than four meters.
Teammate Rowan Hamilton, who has another year of competition remaining in the Youth age division, was the bronze medalist in the hammer with a toss of 60.11 meters. In addition, Hamilton’s toss moved him into third place in the Canadian Youth division rankings behind Gondara in first (65.46m) and Alberta’s Andreas Troschke (61.11) in second.
The club’s third medal was secured by high jumper Michael Lambert. Injured through the first three months of the outdoor season, Lambert made the best of his limited season by clearing 1.96m to win the bronze medal in his specialty.
Ocean Athletics Alexa Porpaczy, who is a VR training athlete, cleared 1.69 meters to win the gold medal in the Youth Division female high jump. Porpaczy completed her year ranked number one in Canada in her age division with a season’s best jump of 1.76 meters achieved at the BC Athletics jamboree.
