Universal Athletics’ Jasneet Nijjar will be in her second year of the U16 category when she competes at the 2016 Vancouver Sun Harry Jerome Indoor Games on February 6 at the Richmond Olympic Oval. In 2015 she was ranked second in British Columbia behind her one-year-older teammate, Katarina Vlahovic.
Jasneet hold the Jerome Indoor U14 record for the 60m with her time of 8.15 seconds for the 60m sprint. Can she threaten Katarina’s U16 record of 7.92 seconds?
Katarina will move up to the U18 category. Vlahovic will face strong opposition as Jasmine Lew of South Fraser TC competes in the 60m. While Katarina has a best in the 100m of 12.48 seconds, Jasmine from the rival Surrey club has a best of 12.45 seconds.
Jasmine runs for the South Fraser Track Club and took second at the 2015 Legion meet in the long jump with a personal best of 5.63m
