    Thanks Jccc110. I wanted to see if I knew this person but I did not.
    I was thinking Warren Lee who went to UBC but I was not sure if he was from BC or not.

    Of course, one of my runners has five times run faster than one of the 'records', (twice at the BC championships, twice at Canadian championships), and I'm hoping the record will finally make it onto the next update but not expecting it to.
    Rainy.here,
    What I meant by the " air brushing " was the feeling I got when going to the official site ( to look up who had the 30 year old record) of track in Canada ( big mistake) and noticing how they missed a few chunks of their history.
    My own little hang up when voluntary memory loss gets the better of people.
    Fortunately for us there is the site.

    Where do you train?
    Do you know what track that was set on ?
    Do you know the time ? I bet it was hand time then depending on what meet it was performed at. It could have been electric?

    I'll go look it up Ang...

    Ok apparently I misplaced one of my boxes of track stuff when cleaning up this winter. I'll keep an eye out and update you.

    Edit - It was hand timed at 14.1.

    14.1 30 years ago is really fast. In the US, each year there might be a few dozen kids who break 14 seconds. Very impressive record.

    Yeah but unfortunately with a hand time, we'll never know just how fast he was.
    Dylan Armstrong's BC Highschool Champs' hammer record of 75.22m is pretty good too.

    Thanks for the interest Ange
    I train at Memorial Park. It's the closest track to my school and walking there only takes 20 minutes :-). I also have to carry the hurdles from my friend's house which is set in the middle of the jaunt. So it's 7 hours of school then walk 10 minutes, then carry the 4 set of hurdles another 10 minutes to reach the track. But I believe I am already more fortunate than a lot of people who live even further away from an available track. Charle wasn't wrong when he said Track in Canada is a neglected stepchild..

    The track the record was ran on, if I'm correct, is probably the Swangard Stadium. I'm sure you've heard of it. That is where the annual BC High School Track and Field Provincials take place.

    Very true! I've been amazed and attracted to this record since the first time I've entered the meet as a grade 8. It would be even cooler and if he could return as an alumni but several google searches tells me his interest in track has discontinued .

    I don't have a coach... my coach is myself and he's not that good ha. I'm with a local club from time to time (spring break, summer vacation) but it's not available to me during school time. Their training is rather disorganized.. but I love training long jump with their coaches. I have already seen a lot of improvement in that area.

    At this time I'm just putting pieces of workout together, such as speed, tempo, technique in one week. I use to be after the "perfect program", but if i wait until conditions are optimal I will never get anywhere. So I'm very fortunate I can post speed-related questions and hurdle technique to CF forum, you guys provide a lot of help!

    If you want to improve faster, you'll want to find a coach. How far can you travel to train? Vancouver Olympic Club or Kajaks might be worth looking into.
