Record setting officer takes four in New York

Police and Fire World Games

Four members of the RCMP’s Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment travelled to New York for the Police and Fire World Games, and one of them turned in a record-setting performance.

Cpl. Tanya Marlyk of the Integrated Forensic Identification Section, Sgt. Nathalie Caron of the Chilliwack detachment, Const. Catherine Gillis of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team and Sgt. Marion Craig of the Pacific Region Training Center were those participating from the area.

They competed in hockey, soccer and track and field.

Craig had enormous success in her track and field events.

A 26 year veteran of the Force, she won the 800 and 1500 metre races along with the longer-distance five and 10 kilometre runs.

The soon-to-be 50-year-old set age-group records in all four races.

Since the Games began in 1985 in San Jose, CA, attendance has continued to grow, world records have been broken, and lasting friendships forged.

The games are held biennially and Vancouver was the host city in 2009.

“All of the officers from the Upper Fraser Valley area represented us so well and we are really proud of their accomplishments in New York,” said Const. Tracy Wolbeck.

The next games will be held overseas, taking place in Belfast, Ireland in 2013.
