Six athletes from Sudbury's Track North Athletic Club competed at the Canadian Junior (Under 20) Track and Field Championships in Winnipeg this weekend, returning with three medals and 3 top-eight finishes.
Alicia Violin of Hanmer placed 6th in the triple jump, with a breakthrough personal-best leap of 11.46 metres on her fourth round of jumping. It was a significant improvement over last year as Violin, better known as a gymnast and in only her second year of jumps training, did not make the top-12 final last year. Violin also placed 16th in the long jump with a distance of 5.14 metres.
"It was an amazing nationals for us," said Track North jumps coach Jim Taylor. "It's a large country with excellent talent, and to have six Track North athletes return as national medalists and three others finish in the top-eight is a major accomplishment."
