Every student was a gold medal winner at the annual Elementary Special Track & Field Meet for students with special needs Friday.
Medals were handed out to more than 200 athletes from 35 district schools, thanks to sponsorship from the law firm of Kane Shannon & Weiler. Students in grades 3 to 7 participated in individual and relay races plus a range of field events.
The fourth annual meet was once again organized by William Watson Elementary principal Marg Geddes and kicked off with a warmup led by South Surrey resident Lynn Kanuka, who won a bronze medal in the 3000m in the 1984 Los Angeles Summer Olympics.
“I just find them so inspirational,” said Geddes of the student athletes. “They’re so determined to do their best and so proud to represent their school.”
Surrey Board of Education chairperson Laurae McNally was also on hand to congratulate the athletes and present ribbons.
The meet was held under sunny skies at South Surrey Athletic Park.
