Everyone wins!

Three competitors from the West Boundary went to the 2014 BC Senior Games and all three came home with hardware.

Midway resident Gladys Brown proudly shows off the silver medal she won at the 2014 BC Senior Games.

The 2014 BC Seniors Games brought together nearly 4,000 participants in 100’s of events for one amazing week last month in Langley. Three of those competitors are from the West Boundary.

Les Jackman of Rock Creek took silver in the Men’s 70-74 Division A Golf with a score of 148.

His wife, Donna, won a bronze Women’s 70-74 5000 km Power Walk with a time of 45:16:48. She also placed 4th in the 10 km Power Walk finishing in 1:34:19.

Gladys Brown of Midway has competed in Senior Games for all but one of the past 15 years. This year she brings home silver in the Women’s 75-79 Triple Jump with a distance of 2.7 m.

This will be the last year the event is held under the name BC Summer Games—from now on they will be called the 55+ BC Games.

Fort Langley-Aldergrove MLA Rich Coleman used the Langley Games closing ceremony as a chance to unveil the new name. The rebranding is meant to better reflect the changing society that sees people living longer and healthier, and more active, lives.

The next games will be held in North Vancouver from August 25-29, 2015.
