Congratulations to Thunderbirds Stephanie Cho, Kenny Schultze and Stephen Abosi, who competed at the high performance meet at the University of Washington this past weekend.
Stephen Abosi ran a smoking 60m- 6.88! A huge pb from last year's 7.04. He finished 8th in a field that included US Olympic sprinter Ryan Bailey, professional athletes and many NCAA division 1 leaders. His performance would rank him 3rd among Senior men in Canada...except he's from Botswana! Stephen also ran a 200 meters-indoor pb (22.8 ), despite a conservative race due to minor injury.
Stephanie Cho ran 57.85 in the 400m (10th place among an elite field). This is an Indoor pb and nearly a pb for her past outdoor performances! This performance ranks her 1st in Canada among indoor Junior women. Stephanie also advanced to 60m hurdle semifinals and PBd with 9.43.
Kenny Schultze ran a blazing 8.59 in the senior men's 42 inch high hurdles and was 14th overall among NCAA div 1 stars! This was his first competition at this hurdle height.
Jerome indoor is next, and we are looking forward to everyone doing their best and showing Thunderbird Spirit.
