The past two weekends have found athletes from Nelson’s Kootenay Chaos Track Club spending quite a bit of time on the winners’ podium.

Two weeks ago Koby Upper came away with gold medals in the hurdles, 100 m sprint, long jump and shot put at the Legion meet in Trail. At the same competition Mitchell Erickson won the high jump and 600 m run. Edmond Daras won the 200 hurdles and 2,000 m run.

Avie Waterfall won the 100 m and placed second in the 300 m run while Zoe Taylor was third in the 2,000 m race. Kieran Dehnel was a gold medallist in the 800 and 1200 m races. Taya Short, Carmen Lewandowski and Ethan Yanke also performed well in their events but fell just short of the medal podium.

This past weekend Matti Erickson continued his winning ways by garnering gold medals in both the 800 and 1,200 m runs at the Norwesters meet in Vancouver. He missed the provincial record in the 1,200 by only two seconds.
