And then suddenly it was day 4! Our final day of competition at the Games.  

The sprinters once again had the joy of being first on track, first thing in the morning with the 200m finals starting bright and early at 9am. Luc ran a strong race to take 2nd place in the B final with a time of 22.15. 

Brianna T. ran 26.19 and Nicole D. ran 26.25 to finish 15th and 16th overall.

And our Special O women stole the show once again with two outstanding performances in the 200m Special O women’s A final. Vesta Orchard knocked A SECOND AND A HALF off her 200m personal best, with a time of 31.09 (down from 32.56 which she ran in the heats) to earn herself a Bronze medal.  

Her teammate Regan Hofley brought home the Gold with her time of 29.60.  

Tristan Allen showed some grit and rallied from a tough run in the 800m heats to absolutely crush the field in the men’s 800m B final. Pulling ahead by almost a second to win in a time of 1:51.68.

Derek Onraet finished 7th in Pole Vault with his best jump of 4.20m  

Taking multi-events and multi-tasking to a whole new level, Madisson Lawrence set a new CSG record in the Heptathlon Long Jump with her jump of 6.20m. She then competed in the women’s Long Jump final DURING her heptathlon javelin competition, where her jump of 6.26m was a personal best performance and was enough to secure yet another silver medal. She also threw a personal best in Javelin of 28.04m. 

Rofi A, secured a strong 8th place finish with her best jump of 5.58m in women’s Long Jump.  

And if winning two Bronze medals in the Special O 100m and 200m wasn’t enough, in the women’s ambulatory Para Discus, Vesta Orchard had a strong competition throwing 15.60m, her second best ever performance in the event!

In the men’s Long Jump, Graham H-C finished off the competition in the always challenging 4th place spot with his jump of 6.96m. While not quite the jump he was looking for, it was still his 3rd best jump ever in competition.  

Anna M, finished 7th in Discus with her best throw of 37.32m.  

To wrap up her busy day, Madisson L took the win in the heptathlon 800m running a strong 2:17.07. Not only did this earn her the heptathlon Gold medal, it also secured her an overall point total of 5655, breaking the CSG heptathlon record.  

Unfortunately, after an incident during an exchange the women’s 4x400m relay team was disqualified.  

Our men’s 4x400m relay team of Luc Deleau, Tristan Allen, Quincy Telus and Andrew Simard all had the run of their lives, narrowly finishing 4th and in the process breaking a 25 year old Provincial record set back at the 1997 Canada Summer Games in Brandon MB with a time of 3:12.20.
