                        SYLVRIN SMITH
It’s the end of a long season but that did not slow down YUTC athletes, as they had 9 personal
bests on the way to winning 5 medals at this past weekend’s OTFA Bantam, Midget, Youth
Championships held at York University.

Leading the way for YUTC was bantam sprinter Sylvrin Smith, who won the 100m and placed 2nd in
the 200m. Sylvrin ran a personal best time in the 100m qualifying of 13.92 followed by another
personal best of 13.61 in the final to take the GOLD! On Sunday, Sylvrin ran 28.13 in the 200m
qualifying and a 28.3 in the final for the silver. Sylvrin is now ranked 2nd on the YUTC 2008 outdoor
performance rankings. Congratulations to Sylvrin and Coach Basil on a really good weekend.

Other YUTC athletes medalling this weekend were youth throwers Allison Loyst and Eric
Brathwaite who both placed 3rd in their hammer competitions.

YUTC results are below with personal best performances marked in bold. For complete results visit
the OTFA website at We are still waiting for the OTFA Club overall championship results.

          Update – Chloe Major Scratches Due to Injury.
YUTC high jumper Chloe Major will miss this coming weekend’s National Youth
Championships due to injury to her plant leg. Chloe had to withdraw from last
weekend’s OTFA Youth girl’s high jump when she felt something strange in her
plant leg. Chloe is coming off a season best at Canadian Junior Championships
and was looking forward to Sherbrooke.
YUTC is still sending two athletes; Eric Brathwaite (hammer & Shot) and Adam
Engel (javelin).

The Legion Athletics Championships that take place each year will now serve as
the Canadian Youth Track and Field Championships. The Legion Canadian
Youth Athletic Championships will now combine the Legion U15 and U17
programs with an open youth Canadian Championships. Each provincial
command will still send teams to compete in the U15 and U17 categories, but
additional athletes will be allowed to compete in the U17 category, if they meet
the eligibility criteria.

                         ONTARIO SUMER GAMES
The Ontario Summer Games are a biennial multi-sport competition involving over
3,500 participants. 120 of Ontario’s top Espoir athletes (ages 16 to 21yrs of age)
have been selected to compete in the track & field competition. At the same
time, the 5th Eastern Canadian Espoir Team Championships will be held
involving teams from Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Novia Scotia, PEI,
Newfoundland and Labrador. Ontario will have two teams made up from the 120
athletes selected for the Ontario Summer Games.

In each track event there will be a single competition for both meets with
standings extracted for each competition with overall results. Special Ontario
Summer Games medals will be presented to the top 3 Ontario athletes in each

Since the age group for the Ontario Summer Games and the Espoir competition
coincides with that of the 2009 Canada Summer Games , this competition will
serve as an important identification tool for potential team members for the
Ontario Canada Summer Games team.

Three YUTC athletes have been named to the Ontario Summer Games/Espoir
Team and they are:

   Shennae Steele – 100m, 200m
   Kristin Obrochta – Hammer, Shot Put, Discus
   Daniel Novia – Shot, Hammer, Discus
