Ziggy’s Air Force

British Columbia has been well known for the site of the Abbotsford Airshow for over 50 years. But now there is a growing awareness of another type of high flier. This reputation of defying gravity has no jet engines but tremendous muscular energy released by fast twitch fibers of the entire body. Yes, this is not high flying but high jumping.  Perhaps this new breed should be named the “Ziggy’s Air Force”.

JESSICA SMITH PLACES SECOND AT TORONTO INTERNATIONAL

Friday July 13, 2012
Fully recovered from the illness that affected her 10-days ago at the Canadian Championships, Jessica Smith took part in the 800-meters Wednesday evening at the Toronto International.
Although she got off to a poor start in the field of 12 runners and found herself in last place at the cut-in point after the first 100 meters, Smith made an excellent recovery. She charged down the final straight and picked off a number of runners and when she crossed the finish line Smith was in second place.
The race was won by fellow Olympian Melissa Bishop of Toronto in 2:01.68 with Smith just an eyelash behind with a clocking of 2:01.83. Third place went to Canadian Champion Lemlen Bereket (2:02.25) who now trains out of the Victoria High Performance Centre.
Smith has one more race when she runs the 1500-meters this Saturday at the BC Athletics Jamboree that takes place at the Towne Centre track in Coquitlam. Following that she will travel to Germany for a training camp where she will be joined by high jumper and fellow Valley Royal Olympian Mike Mason.
