It’s not often in track and field events that you get two for the price of one, but that’s just what Sandy Anderson, 72, achieved last week in St. John’s, N.B.
This year’s Canadian Masters Championship was combined with the North American, Central American and Caribbean Masters Championships, so winning athletes could be awarded medals in both competitions at the same time – which Anderson turned to her advantage.
By winning the W70 pole vault and equalling her Canadian record of 1.50 metres, she became both the Canadian and NACAC champion at the same time.
The latter result would have been a new B.C. Masters W70 record, except for the fact that the meet officials did not have a steel tape on hand to verify the measurement, so it could not be officially certified.
