Burnaby Striders represented well at this past weekend’s BC Championship Jamboree held in Kamloops, BC. Rachel Roberts, Marisa Mazziotti & Brandon Hsu represented in the U16 category and Katelyn Malmquist competed in the U18 grouping. Every year, the Jamboree attracts athletes from across the province, with a special addition this year from the Australian national team! It was a weekend of rain & sunshine, with the athletes giving it their all to claim provincial rankings and to also strive for a chance to qualify for Team BC at this year’s National meet.
Five top ten finishes with Rachel, Marisa and Katelyn all making it as top 10 finalists for the 200m, with Rachel also representing in the top 10 for the 300m. Marisa landed in 8th spot for the Long Jump and Katelyn captured 10th in the Shot Put throw.
Special shout out to Brandon, who had personal best times in all of his races, capturing triple GOLD in the 100m, 200m and 300m dash!
