It had already been a long day before the Bob Vigars Classic got started on Saturday night, as day 2 of the OFSAA West Regionals concluded. Many of our volunteers had already put in 8+hrs that day, as well as the day before. While a tired, but still cheery crew of volunteers kept plugging away, well-rested athletes arrived ready to heat up the track.
4 stadium records were broken at the our meet this year, showing that the Bob Vigars Classic is a meet that should be on your calendar next year!
Andre Ford-Azonwanna kicked things off winning the men's 100m with a time of 10.37s. He was the class of the field, but it was a strong one, with the slowest time in the final being 10.82s.
