The preparation for the 2015 Western Canada Summer Games for Flying 'M' athletes was a tough one.  Both Taylor Heald and Jared Allary started their preparations early on in the season.  Both athletes were training and competing throughout the season with different weighted implements pretty much every week.  Jared, just graduated from Oak Park High School and was the 2015 MHSAA Champion in the Shot Put.  Jared was competing with a 5kg shot during his High School season, then with the 6kg shot for his age class competitions, the 6kg hammer and 1.75kg discus at National Junior Championship in July, then qualifying and competing at the WCSG with the senior men's weighted implements, 7.26kg hammer and 2kg discus.

Taylor had a similar experience in the shot, throwing the 3kg shot during all age class competitions and the 4kg shot at WCSG.  Taylor was a triple gold medalist at the MHSAA champion, earning first place in the Shot Put, Discus and Javelin in 2015 competing for Grant Park High School

HUGE congratulations go to both of our Flying 'M' athletes who competed and represented Manitoba and the Flying 'M' Athletic Club well this season. 

At the Western Canada Summer Games in Wood Buffalo, Alberta:

Jared finished the season off with a huge personal best with the senior men's hammer and a 39.99m throw which earned him 6th place, and another top 8 performance in the discus with a throw of 34.70m.

And Taylor, who had a great season and brought home two gold medals from the Western Canada Summer Games.  Taylor won gold in the discus with a throw of 42.40m, with her second gold coming in the shot with a throw of 12.84m.  Taylor earned the 5th place position in the hammer with a throw of 43.27m and another top 8 performance in the javelin with a throw of 30.63m.

 

What a great season for our young Flying 'M' Athletes!  Congrats to you and to your coaches!

Today was a great day for our race.  The temperature was 14 degrees at the start line and warmed up to 23 degrees for the awards.  We did hear the course was a bit windy this year but that just kept our racers nice and cool.


Thanks to everyone for volunteering, sponsoring and running our race!

See you all in Winnipeg Beach next year!!

The 2014 Flying 'M' Frolic was a huge success this year.  A new partnership with Ivviva at Polo Park allowed us to surprise some of our female athletes with special awards and giveaways from Ivviva.

The Flying 'M' athletes came out in fine form at their own meet, setting two provincial records.

First up was Jared Allary in the Youth men's weight toss.  Jared broke the provincial record twice during the competition, with the new Youth Provincial Record in the Weight Toss standing at 19.76m!

Next up was Taylor Heald in the Midget women's shot put.  Taylor had a great series in the shot put, with a huge Midget Provincial Record breaking throw of 14.93m!

Congratulations to our record breaking athletes!

Thank you to all of our volunteers, officials and especially the athletes.  WIthout all of you, we wouldn't have a meet!
