2019 Kicks Off @ Harry Jerome Indoor Meet!

2019 season kicked off with Harry Jerome’s Indoor Track meet held at the Richmond¬†Olympic Oval this past weekend. We had both Addy Benefield and Brandon Hsu out representing Burnaby Striders amongst 400+ other athletes – with terrific showings from both.

Addy Benefield competed in the 600m Women’s (13 year old) Event and received GOLD in her track debut with a time of 1:45.28. This was less than a second off breaking the Harry Jerome indoor record of 1:44.46! What a performance!

Brandon clocked in his 60m U16 dash at 7.59s, and he came less than two-tenths of a second from also breaking the indoor meet record! Very strong showing, earning him GOLD in the 60m and a close SILVER in the 300m.

Well done to both and looking to seeing more successes from our Striders’ athletes in the coming few months!
