Track and Field

The 13th annual Royal Canadian Legion burst out of the starting blocks at the track at Haley Field on Saturday with close to 140 young athletes giving their all at the full-day event. Clockwise from top: Trail Track Club’s Ryan Hartleb gets this big ball of iron airborne in the shot put, while the Trail Club’s Jendaya Shields of Rossland hurdles to a victory. The track meet welcomed athletes from across the Kootenays and as far away as Salmon Arm’s McKenzie Woldringh who sails through the air in the long jump (right), and Emma Smith clearing the bar in the hight jump. See Wednesday’s issue of Trail Times for results.
