Ontario Summer Games Recap

We had so much fun in London at the 2018 Ontario Summer Games! On Thursday, August 2, we sent 176 athletes and 20 coaches to gather at TD Stadium for the Athletes Parade and Games opening ceremonies, where the athletes had the opportunity to march into the stadium in front of a huge crowd, and shake Damian Warner’s hand, before having the opportunity to take in a concert.

The two days of competition were definitely exciting, with the final result coming down to the Sprint Medley Relays on Saturday afternoon. In the end, Team Ontario East took home the gold, with a final score of 1,127 points! Team Ontario West was close behind, earning 1,094 total points. Congratulations to both teams on some incredible performances!

In the U14 category, we have a few new provincial records to share! On the boys side, Isaiah Luke broke TWO provincial records! The first was in the 80m dash, where he first ran 9.34 seconds in the qualifier. He then broke his own record with a time of 9.30 seconds in the final, but unfortunately there was an illegal wind of 2.4. On day two, he was at it again. He set a new record time of 17.16 seconds in the Boys U14 150m dash, outshining the previous record of 17.23 seconds. A great weekend for Isaiah! On the girls side, Elise Sawyer set a new record in the U14 Girls 200m Hurdles. She ran a time of 28.91 seconds and that will replace the previous record which was 29.37 seconds. Elise also won the 80m Hurdles, 300m, and was on the team which won the 4x100m Relay.  

A few other notable performances include Mark Skerl, who won both the U16 Boys 100m and 200m Hurdles; Riley Flemington, who won the U16 Boys 800m, and was a part of two winning relay teams (U16 Boys 4x800m, U16 Boys SMR); Alexa Windle, who won both the U16 Girls Hammer and Discus Throws; and Sophia Saldutto, who won the U14 Girls Discus, Javelin and Shot Put.

All of our athletes deserve a huge round of applause, as the weekend was an incredible experience and we know that you all worked very hard to get there. We hope to see some of you back for the Games again in two years! 

The final results will be available on the Results page of our website. You can also find a full album of photos on our Facebook page
