Willing winner in Kamloops

Tasha Willing set two meet records last weekend, competing at the Centennial Track and Field event in Kamloops.

The 13-year-old Chilli­wack Track and Field Club athlete placed first in the discus with a mighty toss of 30.65 metres, shattering the previous meet mark of 27.09m, set in 2003.

Her performance elevated her to sixth spot on the B.C. top 10 ranking in her age group.

She continued to blow away the field in the shot put with a toss of 10.01m. That blasted away the previous meet mark of 9.43m, also set in 2003.

Willing earned another first place finish in javelin, hurling the spear 24.07m.

While Willing was dominating in Kamloops, her CTFC teammates were rolling in Surrey.

The Junior Olympics Meet was held at Bear Creek Park, with Andrew Kirk turning in a quadruple-gold performance.

The 12-year-old won the 100, 200 and 300m dashes with times of 13.06s, 27.19s and 42.93s.

His mark of 4.67m earned him top spot in the long jump.

Sienna Lenz turned in a strong showing in the 11-year-old girls division, scoring double gold in the long jump (3.50m) and shot put (8.06m).

She added a third place finish in high jump, soaring 1.10m into the air.

Marin Lenz competed in the nine-year-old girls division, taking silver medals from the 600m run (2:09.57) and shot put (4.65m). She added bronze in the 60m dash with a blistering time of 10.09s.

Rowan Hamilton competed in the 11-year-old boys division, finishing second in the high jump (1.15m) and shot put (8.01m). Zach Muir competed in the 10-year-old boys division, earning silver in the 1000m run with a time of 3:43.98.

Afton Servatius (13-year-old girls) placed third in the 200m dash with a time of 29.29s, adding another third in the 100m dash with a time of 13.98s.
