The most recent class of inductees in the Athletics Canada Hall of Fame includes Thunderbirds JD Coach Graeme Fell. Graeme is part of an eleven-person cohort that will be honored at the 2014 Canadian Track and Field Champioships in Moncton, NB this June.
From Athletics Canada:
Graeme Vincent Fell from Vancouver, B.C., is one of Canada's best in the 3000-metres steeplechase, his Canadian Record of 8:12.58 set in 1985 stood for 28 years. Graeme won gold at the 1986 Commonwealth Games and bronze at the 1994 edition. He holds the best placing by a Canadian at the IAAF World Championships, fifth, and finished 11and 28 at the 1988 and 1992 Olympic Games. Graeme owns seven Canadian titles (1985-1989, 1993, 1995). "It was a very pleasant surprise to be called to the Hall", notes Graeme on his induction as part of the Class of 2014. "Obviously, I am honoured to be inducted and to join such a remarkable group of athletes, all of who, I consider far worthier than myself. I will receive this as a thank you to all of those around me that sacrificed and helped me along the way."
The Club is very proud of his achievement and we feel lucky to have him as a coach and mentor for our athletes.
