Olympic Trials Part II

A few more from the meet before we move along…

Men’s High Jump

Women’s 100m Hurdles.

Congratulations to Priscilla Lopes-Schliep who won and qualified for the games… She’s off to Beijing to represent Canada. She demolished the field she ran against in Windsor on Saturday afternoon.

However, out of all the events at the meet, I think my favourite to shoot was the Women’s Pole Vault. These ladies are all amazing athletes, and skill and power it must take to be good at the pole vault is simply mind blowing… Where I was able to figure out who was who, I’ve put in their names…

Kelsie Hendry arguably Canada’s best female Pole Vaulter.

Another of our athletes headed to Beijing to represent Canada. Hendry vaulted well over 4.3 meters in Windsor, hopefully she’ll be able to bring home a medal for Canada next month.

A big thank you goes out to the staff and volunteers at the University who made the event the success it was. Coach Dennis Fairall and Dennis Snyder were the co-chairs of the organizing committee, and they did a great job.

Also a big thank you to all the athletes who came down and participated. They certainly put on an entertaining show.
