Laurier Primeau, head coach of the University of British Columbia announce today that a Pre Jerome track competition will be organized by the university to providedevelopmental opportunity on Thursday, June 16th at Swangard Stadium starting at 6pm.
“ The UBC Thunderbird Track and Field program will host a track competition for athletes looking for an opportunity to compete at a meet prior to the NTL event.”
John Hawkins, the UBC Olympian who is an assistant coach will be the co-ordinator of this event at Swangard Stadium.
While not directly connected to the UBC event, the Achilles Track and Field Society which organizes the Vancouver Sun Harry Jerome Track Classic on Friday, endorses the concept of providing opportunity to athletes not able to gain invitation the next day.
