Royal City track stars pocket medals

They may have been young but not so restless following a good showing at last month’s B.C. Athletics Junior Development championships in Surrey.
Members of the Royal City Track and Field Club collected a number of big results, including twin golds for Ava Forsyth.
The nine-year-old middle distance runner topped her division with first-place results in both the 600- and 1000-metre events, the latter including a personal best. She also placed fifth in the 60m hurdles.
Mikyle Sayani won the 60m hurdle as well as bronze in long jump, while registering a fourth-place mark in the 600m race.
Also bringing home medals were 12-year-old Levi Tuura, a silver in the high jump, while Kate Bowles earned bronze in the 13-year-old division hammer throw. The girls’ medley relay for 13-year-olds picked up silver.
