Griffiths, two other Jaguars qualify for B.C. Summer Games
He’s a man for all seasons.
Sion Griffiths already competed in the B.C. Winter Games this year in Mission.
Now, he’ll be going to the B.C. Summer Games as well in Nanaimo in a rare event double.
Clara Hughes, who recently visited Duncan, is one of the few athletes at the Olympic level to compete in both Winter and Summer Olympics.
Griffiths, pictured, qualified for the B.C. Summer Games in hammer throw (first), shot put and pole vault (second), and javelin (third) at the Zone 6 trials, but he can only enter three events at the Games.
Denise Roy (4x100, 100 and 200) and Luke Armstrong are the other CeeVac Jaguar midgets (14-15-year-olds) who earned qualifying spots in the Games July 17 to 20.
