After hitting all three of her squat attempts she earned a personal record.
Performance-wise that may have been the highlight of the day but for me the lasting impression is the guts she displayed to take on this challenge, face down the nerves and meet it head on, becoming an athlete somewhere in the process.
She is now setting her sights on BC Provincials on June 12th, also to be held in Vancouver.
Yvonne has inspired a bunch of friends and Terminal City gym-mates. Lots of interest in competition around here now. I strongly believe that entering a sport-competition is one of the absolute best ways to light a fire under your butt in regards to one's training and motivation. So thanks Yvonne for having the courage to do this and to become a leader.
