Olympic voice

Olympian lends support to proposed sports complex

Having spent a part of my childhood in Vernon, I know how much a track would help the community. The sole reason why my family ended up moving to Kamloops, eventually in my later years, was because of the track facility.

I credit that track and the coaches for all of my achievements at the world class level. A track in Vernon will not only keep youth out of trouble and living healthy lifestyles, but also have to potential to breed future Olympians.
