Scorcher In Ottawa

July 9, 2018

To simply say it was hot in Ottawa doesn't do it justice.  It was a scorcher!  This past week London Western members were in the nations capital at the Canadian Jr/Sr National Track and Field Championships. The championships put Canada's top athletes on display and LW'ers did not disappoint.  


We walked away with 13 medals across a range of events, again further highlighting how well-rounded our club truly is.  Congrats to the following medalists...
