“Our athletes have trained hard and it is so exciting to see all their hard work and dedication paying off,” said Minister Bertram. “It was my great pleasure to present the bronze medal to Kurt. He is a two-time national Canadian triple jump champion and tonight – an inspiration to young athletes on PEI.”
The women’s 4 X 100 metre relay team was also successful today; by placing third in their heat they have qualified for Friday’s championship race. Members of the women’s relay team include Meghan Boswall of Charlottetown and sisters Kaitlyn Sobey, Stephanie Sobey and Susan Sobey, from Searletown.
“I encourage all Islanders to take in the amazing competitions occurring this week on Prince Edward Island. From swimming to soccer, wrestling to canoeing, there is something for everyone to enjoy; including a full lineup of cultural activities.”
