Track and Field Community meets at Vancouver Sun Harry Jerome International Track Classic

We really enjoyed the competition at the Vancouver Sun Harry Jerome International Track Classic. Congratulations to the winners and all the best to every athlete they make the journey along their Road to Rio.

In addition to the competition the meet provides an opportunity for the track and field community to gather, catch up on what's going on and to reminisce.

Here is 1948 London Olympic Games High jumper Shirley Olafsson ( 89 years young) comparing notes with Derek Drouin and Mike Mason.  Most certainly today's high jump techniques are different that ones Shirley used in 1948.

Shirley was inducted to the BC Sports Hall of Fame in 2004. More information about her career may be found on the BC Sports Hall of Fame site.
