Track earns Olympian’s approval

Dylan Armstrong toured around the site of the new sports facility at Okanagan College.

An Olympian has given his blessing to Greater Vernon’s new sports facility.

Members of the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee recently toured Dylan Armstrong around the site of the new sports facility at Okanagan College.

Armstrong, a Kamloops native, and Olympic medalist in shot put, was shown around by Ian Cameron, head coach for the Vernon AAA Track and Field Club.

“It is going to be a great thing for our community, and it was exciting to hear Dylan’s glowing comments, especially since he has visited facilities of this type all over the world,” said Cameron.

Vernon AAA offers training in jumps, throws, sprints and hurdles, and middle and long distance

running.
