Elementary school students from North Vancouver descended on Swangard stadium in Burnaby to lay waste to the competition and claim track and field glory for their school. Battles were hard-fought in the 4×100 relay, 100m dash, 1500m distance, 800m distance, 400m distance, long jump, shot put, high jump and triple jump categories.
A blue ribbon lives on the bulletin board of a childhood bedroom until being transferred to a shoebox in a dusty attic, forgotten amidst pubescent angst and teenage dreams.
But glory? Glory lasts forever.
