Posted Friday, November 7, 2014

On Thursday afternoon members of the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee toured Dylan Armstrong around the site of the new sports facility that is currently under construction on the corner of Highway 97 and College Way in Coldstream.

The Kamloops, B.C. native, and Olympic medalist in shot put, visited the sports facility with Ian Cameron, head coach for the Vernon AAA Track and Field Club.

"It is going to be a great thing for our community, and it was exciting to hear Dylan's glowing comments, especially since he has visited facilities of this type all over the world," said Cameron.

Vernon AAA offers training in jumps, throws, sprints and hurdles, and middle and long distance running. For more information on registration for track and field programs visit the website at www.vernontrackandfield.com, or phone Ian Cameron at 250-546-6067.
