Will Canadian U16 Champion, Raiya Matonovich enter the 2023 Harry Jerome Games at the ROO February 4th?


Kamloops Track Club's Raiya Matonovich won the Canadian title over 800m last summer with a time of 2:13.24. She may attend BC Athletics award dinner on February 4th in Richmond. Will she run at the Harry Jerome Indoor Games on the same day at the Richmond Olympic Oval? We may not know until the entry deadline on January 29th. Raiya has a best time of 2:10.78 set in 2021 as a 14 year old.

This is the eleventh year that this event offers the opportunity to compete on the indoor track and field complex at the Richmond Olympic Oval. The facility accommodates a level, 5-lane, 200-meter oval running track plus room for shot put and high jump. In addition, a separate 100m straightaway offers a safe, 5-lane environment for up to 60m sprints and 60m hurdles events. The one day event is sponsored by the Richmond Kajaks Track & Field Club and the Achilles International Track & Field Society.
