Jul 27- 29, 2012, Winnipeg.
On the same weekend that many VOC JDs experienced their very first championship competition Katherine Tourigny competed with experience and confidence at the Junior National in Winnipeg. Kathryn, an 18 year old in the Junior category (18 &19 year olds) has been coached by the Meces for six years with a specific focus in hurdles.
Her bronze event was the 400m hurdles, where she fought hard. She fell at the last hurdle, then stood up and sprinted securing third place. Her result of 1:01.44 is a new personal best and it is the standard for the Junior Pan American Games next year in Lima Peru.
