In honour of International Youth Day on August 12, the youth centre hosted the first annual Summer Fun Olympic Games. We had five teams of three youth each competing for glory, bragging and gift certificates from three generous sponsors: Northmart, Video Effects and Twisted Ladle.

The athletes competed in the 400 yard relay, triple jump, canoe slalom, show jumping and hammer throw. All participants played well as team members and were extremely tired by the end of the three hour event. The winners were:

First place:                               Second place:                Third place:           
Darcie Setzer                    Jackson Smith                 Dalton McLeod
Farrell Pope                      Danny Kaye                     Davonna Kasook
Joseph Kaye                     Tyren Kisoun                   Samantha Stokell

We'll have another Olympics in the winter - start training now!
