Local athlete William Chamney recently won two bronze medals in the under-18 division at Western Canadian track-and-field meet in Saskatoon.
He earned one bronze in the 100-metre dash, and the other in the 4x100-metre relay.
Chamney was also fifth in the 200 metres and eighth in the 110-metre hurdles.
During his events, he said that he gave it his all to earn the medals.
“I tried my best, that’s for sure,” he said.
Next up for Chamney is the Legion Youth National Championships in Langley B.C., from August 15 to 17. He will definitely be in the 4x100 event. He qualified for nationals through the Royal Canadian Legion basic track camp. They chose events that they think he will succeed in.
For Chamney to succeed in nationals, he said he has to keep up with his training.
“If I don’t train, then I’m not going to do as well as I have been,” Chamney said.
Chamney said he'll be spending a lot of time in the gym prior to nationals.
While he was pleased with his results in Saskatoon, he hopes to perform better at nationals.
