Achilles international Track and Field Society's President Marek Jedrzejek stated today, " Achilles Society and Richmond Kajaks have no choice but to cancel the 2022 Jerome Indoor Games planned for February 4". This is in response to December 17th revision of British Columbian public health rules which prohibit athletic competitions for weeks to come.
2022 Jerome Indoor Meet Co-Directors, Carl Savage and Fred Pawluk were well advanced in planning for the eleventh version of the only indoor track and filed event in Greater Vancouver. All track and field clubs in British Columbia will be disappointed again as the 2021 event was also cancelled due to the pandemic. The 200m indoor track was completed in 2011 as a major legacy of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games at the Richmond Olympic Oval. The event attracts almost 1500 people to the excellent facility by the Fraser River.
The Jerome Indoor Games honoured 1964 Olympic 100m medalist, Harry Jerome whiles providing competition for athletes form youth to seniors for the past decade. Achilles International Track and Field Society is planning the Vancouver Sun Harry Jerome International Classic set for Tuesday, June 14th at Swangard Stadium. The non profit volunteer society is hoping that public health rules will allow the event to proceed with safety to all.
