Silver medals for South Fraser

Sprinter Jasmine Lew named athlete of the meet

A group of five athletes from the South Fraser Track and Field Club won a pair of silver medals at the Legion Canadian Youth Track and Field Championships in Langley last weekend.

Competing in the under-16 group, Amanda Moore, Georgia Paterson, Cheryl Chow and Jasmine Lew  placed second in the 4×100 relay in a time of 51.13.

Moore, Chow and Lew teamed with Jade Kreiser to win the silver medal in the 1,600m medley event. Lew, 13, was named South Fraser’s top athlete of the meet.

“She learned to have nerves of steel as she competed against girls two years older for the first time ever,” said South Fraser head coach Robert Esmie.

In a field of 29 athletes, Lew placed 10th overall in the 100m sprint and 11th overall in the 200m race.

“I was so nervous and afraid of coming last,” said Lew. “The experience was good and now I know I can place against the older girls.”
