On Saturday, February 6th, the 2016 Vancouver Sun Harry Jerome Indoor Games is set for the Richmond Olympic Oval. This will be the 6th edition of the revival of indoor track and field in the lower mainland of British Columbia. Last year the winner of the University Division‘s Pacific World Cup was Trinity Western University led by coach, Laurier Primeau. In just a few years the former Scottish head coach built a strong program at TWU, which competes in the CIS indoor season.
Laurier has already announced an outstanding number of new recruits to the Point Grey campus but these athletes will not enroll until next September. Does he have enough strength on the UBC team to take on the battle for the Pacific World Cup?
The Richmond Olympic Oval facility is a legacy of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. The inaugural event in 2011 was the first indoor track and field event held in Metro Vancouver for almost 40 years.
The Jerome Indoor Games provides opportunity for athletes of all ages from 10 yrs. to 70+ years on the 5 lanes of the 200m Pulastic track. This competition is an important step towards the 2016 Rio Olympic Games set for this August and for all young athletes with the dream of wearing the Maple Leaf sometime in the future
