The London Western TFC was well represented by 27 of its members at the NXTCHAMP Invitational Track & Field Championships on July 16-18, 2021 at the Toronto T&F Centre. The meet, hosted by 310 Running, was an event that gave high school athletes the chance to compete in lieu of another cancelled OFSAA championship. Athletes were nothing less than thrilled for the opportunity to be back, to say the least!
Our athletes turned in some impressive performances, with several PBs, making coaches proud. Most notably, Stephen Davis brought home a set of medals with a Gold in Senior Boys High Jump (1.96m), Silver in Long Jump (6.75m), and Bronze in the 110mH (14.53). Julia Tunks was a double Gold medallist in the Novice Girls Discus (47.19m) and Shot Put (14.75m). And, the LWTFC swept the Senior Boys 1500 and 3000 events, with Heath McAllister, Aiden Coles, and Tristan Coles dominating the podium.
A total of 20 medals were won: 7 Gold, 7 Silver, and 6 Bronze. Listed below are the winners. Congratulations and good luck with the rest of the season!
