Seaquam Secondary athlete wins twice at B.C. championships

Michael Aono of Seaquam Secondary easily won two gold medal races in sprint events, and was named the meet’s top male athlete.

He won his first race in the men’s 400m event Friday, surging past his opponents with 100m to go and posting a time of 48.31 seconds, almost three-quarters of a second better than the runner-up time of 49.05.

“I had a lot of energy,” said Aono. “I had a lot for a last push.”

He added another gold medal in the 200m dash, his time of 21.38 more than a second better than runner-up Tanner Carnegie of Tsawassen’s Southpointe Academy.

It was also just .04 seconds shy of the meet record, set by Frank Hurt Secondary student Joel Nelson in 1997.
