Last weekend, despite rain and wind, two VOC athletes had incredible performances in the women’s heptathlon and men’s decathlon events. Both events were scheduled over two days.
Jasper Schiedel, a grade ten student at Vancouver College, won the decathlon event as an exhibition entry, with the high score of 5560. Jasper had a huge improvement with PBs in seven events (100m, 110mH, 400m, 1500m, Pole Vault, Javelin and Discus). Jasper entered with exhibition status so that he would be eligible to compete in his junior age division at next weekend ’s B.C. high school track and field championships in Langley and therefore did not wear the gold medal.
Stephanie Cho, a grade 11 student at Sir Winston Churchill, came third in the heptathlon with the great result of 4342 points. Stephanie had excellent results in 100mH, 800m and Javelin. Stephanie shared the podium with VOC’s favorite training partner Nina Shultz of the NW Spartans who took the Gold.
Overall the VOC Program dominated the event, under the guidance of our coaches Tatjana and Besnik Mece and assistant coaches Steve Nobbs and Jerin Mece.
