Five Passtrak athletes made the journey to take part in the Calgary Spring Challenge on May 12 and 13.

They competed in 37 events and with the help of perfect weather conditions produced some outstanding results. They achieved 18 new lifetime best performances out of a possible 23 and set 12 new Passtrak club records. They also brought home 12 medals for their efforts, six gold, three silver and three bronze.

Mosese Ratudradra had three new personal best results in the Peewee boys age group. He ran 12.34 seconds in the 60m then in the running long jump he improved by 23cm to 2.60m and finally in the standing long jump he improved by 9cm out to 1.25m. He also set a new club record of 9.66m in the discus which earned him a bronze medal.

Zion Ratudradra competed in the Bantam boys age group where he produced five personal best results as well as four new Passtrak club records. His 150m time improved to 23.44 seconds for a new club record. He destroyed his previous best 800m time by 12 seconds and set a new club record by running 2:35.77. His time of 4:10.66 in the 1200m broke the previous club record by 45 seconds. His fourth club record was the result of running 36.05 seconds in the 200m hurdles. He also improved his long jump to 3.85m, his discus to 16.13 and tied his best ever high jump at 1.25m.

Alisi Ratudradra took part in eight events in the Bantam Girls division. She came up with seven medals, three new Passtrak club records and improved in six of her events. She ran 11.13 seconds in the 80m for second place, a personal best and a new club record. She ran 21.12 in the 150m for second place, a personal best and a new club record. She ran 32 seconds in the 200m hurdles for first place, a personal best and a new club record. Her other best ever results came in the 80m hurdles where she ran 15.15 for first place, in the long jump where she spanned 4.46m for first place and in the high jump where she cleared 1.30m for fourth. She also earned a gold medal in the shotput with a 8.49m result and a silver medal in the discus with a toss of 20.41m.

Cameo Hanlon produced three personal best performances out of a possible four, and set a new club record as well. She placed fourth in the Midget girls 200m hurdles in 32.68 seconds, which was a lifetime best and new club record. Her long jump of 4.47m was a personal best and good enough for a bronze medal. She also improved her high jump by 10cm to 1.40m, which was the second highest jump in the competition but placed her fourth on the count back.

Josh Schulz, Passtrak’s newest and oldest athlete, competed in five events in the Youth Boys category. He improved his high jump personal best by 15cm by clearing 1.75m for first place and a new Passtrak club record. His long jump distance of 5.46m also set a new club record and earned him fourth. A 10.13m toss in the shotput claimed first place and his discus distance of 25.28m set a new club record, which was good enough for the bronze medal as well.
